Removing Databases

You can remove databases from the configuration database. Note that Veeam Backup for Salesforce will not automatically delete the database from the host server. You can further reconnect the removed database to the same or to another Veeam Backup for Salesforce server and use it to protect the same organization. If you do not need the data stored in the database anymore, you can manually delete the database after removing it from Veeam Backup for Salesforce.


You cannot remove a database that is currently used by Veeam Backup for Salesforce to protect a Salesforce organization. If you want to remove the database, connect to another database in the backup policy settings.

To remove a database from Veeam Backup for Salesforce, do the following:

  1. Switch to the Configuration page.
  2. Navigate to Salesforce > Databases.
  3. Select the necessary database and click Remove.
  4. In the Remove Database Connection window, acknowledge the operation and click Remove.
