Deleting failed instant recovery job

Post by robnicholsonmalt »

Joy, power outage on Christmas Day caused a Linux VM not to boot so tried doing instant restore. The first instant restored failed but the second worked. However, stuck with a job in the manager which won't end and there is no way to cancel. How do I delete this job from the console?

Hi Rob

Stuck sessions normally needs to be removed in the veeam configuration database. This is only supported if veeam support is involved. Sometimes a reboot can help. But because a instant vm recovery session can survive a server reboot, I don‘t think that it will work to get rid of the instant vm recovery session. But you can try.

Please open a support case like you must do for any technical issues.

After the session is removed, there may be leftovers (registered vms) on the hyperv server. You must remove them by yourself.

I tried a reboot but that didn't work but as if by magic, a few days later and the failed job has disappeared.

In case it helps someone.... Veeam Support helped me with the following solution that worked clearing the stuck IR job immediately without needing reboot. Just need to make sure there is no other IR jobs running as command kills all. This can be executed from PowerShell directly or using the Veeam Console, Menu at the top left > Console > PowerShell
