Cannot remove proxy

Post by widmerkarl »

Hello together

Perhaps i'm blind or dumb. But at a customer i cannot remove an existing proxy. A message tells me that this proxy is used in a certain replication job.

About the infrastructure:
- 4 ESXi hosts (ESXi 5.5 U3b)
- shared NetApp storage
- Veeam Backup & Replication 9 Update 1
- physical Veeam backup server (Server 2012 R2)
- two virtual Veeam proxies (Server 2008 R2)

First i disabled the proxy which i wanted to remove. Then i tried to remove it. It did not work. I also restarted the virtual machine, and then restarted all Veeam services, but nothing worked. Still unable to remove the proxy.

I checked all the existing jobs (backup job, backup copy, replication). The proxy which i want to remove is NOT used in any of these jobs. The proxy is listed as available proxy, but it's actually not marked with the checkbox for using this proxy in the job.

What makes me curious is the fact that, even if the proxy is disabled, it is visible in the list of proxies within a job, and i can mark it to use within this job...

What can i do to remove this proxy?
Best regards,
Karl

Karl, please contact support for assistance. This could be a DB issue.

What happens if you try to remove via PS?

Code: Select all

Asnp VeeamPSSnapin
Get-VBRViProxy -Name "Name of your proxy" | Remove-VBRViProxy -Confirm:$false
Thanks.

This is probably a long shot but have you checked "guest Interaction Proxy" settings as well?

Hi,

Yes, i checked this setting also. The proxy is definitively no more in use in any of the jobs...

I'm already preparing the logs for support, will come back with the support case number.
Best regards,
Karl
