Microsoft Azure Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to permanently remove backup appliances from the backup infrastructure.
After you remove a backup appliance, the following limitations will apply:
Also, the restore process will start taking more time to complete causing data transfer costs to increase as Veeam Backup & Replication will not be able to use native Microsoft Azure capabilities and will have to process more data.
To remove a backup appliance, do the following:
- In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, open the Backup Infrastructure view.
- Navigate to Managed Servers.
- Select the necessary backup appliance and click Remove Appliance on the ribbon.
Alternatively, right-click the appliance and select Remove.
- In the Veeam Backup & Replication window, click Yes to acknowledge the operation.
If you want to remove an appliance from both the backup and the Microsoft Azure environment, select the Delete cloud resources associated with the backup appliance? check box in the opened window. Veeam Backup & Replication will remove all resources associated with this appliance in Microsoft Azure.
However, if an appliance has been deployed from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace or is running Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure version 2.x (or earlier), to remove resources from the Microsoft Azure environment, you must follow the instructions provided in section Uninstalling Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure.
