How to completely remove a VM from a replication job

Hi All,

Currently using Veeam B&R for vSphere 9.0.0.1491

I have a replication job that has 8 VMs in that is running fine, replicating from our core datacentre to an offsite location. This job used to have 10 VMs in, but I removed 2 using the remove button on the Virtual Machines tab and as far as I can see that has worked to remove the VM's from the job, I can't see them mentioned anywhere in the job and when the job runs it does not process them.

The odd behaviour I'm experiencing is in two places:

When adding this replication job as a Linked job in SureBackup and going into advanced to set the individual verification settings it still shows the two old VMs that I removed... and when I actually run the job it includes and tries to process them.

The second place is when I add the 2 removed VM's to a new replication job and use replica seeding I get a pop-up that says the VM I want to use as the seed is already specified in another job, my first job, where I thought I had removed them.

I am aware of VM retention in regular Backup jobs where you can specify that old/removed VM's from jobs should be removed after xx days and that they are automatically purged with an Active Full - but I cannot see any mention of similar functionality within the configuration of a Replication Job.

I'm a bit stumped - any insight into this would be appreciated!

Cheers,

Hi,

Can you please check if you still see these VMs in the VM replicas nodes of the backup console?

Thanks!

Aha, that seems to have sorted it, I don't know how I missed that whole area until now!

Thanks
