Replication job failing -Can I remove restore points?

Post by rgs3 » Feb 02, 2011 4:20 pm

One of my jobs are failing because we were saving too many restore points for our file server (14). We ran out of space and now our backups are failing. I changed the amount of restore points to keep, but I think it only deletes those after a successful replication.
Is there a way to delete old (first 7) restore points to clear some space and allow the replica to run?

Regards,
Richard

Richard,

Yes, you can manually delete the most latest (oldest) VRB files for your replication job. Provided that you've adjusted your retention policy, on the next incremental run Veeam backup server will also remove restore points records from SQL configuration database.

Thanks!
