Removing RHV Backup Proxy

In this article

    You can remove an RHV backup proxy from the backup infrastructure if you want to replace it with another RHV backup proxy or to connect it to another backup server. When you remove the RHV backup proxy, information about backup jobs processed by the RHV backup proxy is deleted from the Veeam Backup & Replication database, and you cannot perform RHV VM backup and entire VM restore operations until a new RHV backup proxy is deployed. However, backup files are not deleted from you repositories, and you can use them, for example, for instant recovery or VM guest OS file restore operations.

    To remove the RHV backup proxy, do the following:

    1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select the Backup Proxies node.
    3. In the working area, select the RHV backup proxy and click Remove Proxy on the ribbon, or right-click the RHV backup proxy and select Remove.

    Removing RHV Backup Proxy

    1. In the Veeam Backup & Replication window, confirm that you want to remove the RHV backup proxy VM.

    By default, Veeam Backup & Replication removes information about the RHV backup proxy and its jobs only from the Veeam Backup & Replication database. In this case, the RHV backup proxy will keep its configuration and information about backup jobs. This can be useful if you want to connect the RHV backup proxy to another backup server.

    If you want to permanently delete the RHV backup proxy VM, select the Permanently delete the proxy VM from the cluster and all of its backup jobs (irreversible) check box and click Yes.
