Remove Veeam Proxy

Post by Reklov » Aug 02, 2019 12:08 pm

Hi,
I had removed some Backup Proxys from Configuration. They disapeard in the list, but they are still listet if I enter

Get-VBRServers

The Veeamsoftware on the removed Proxys are still in place to.

After Update to 9.5U4b the automatic remote updatecycle lists these Proxys to.
Shoud I remove the Software an the VBRservers manualy ?

Thanks
Volker

Hi Volker, how did you remove the proxies from Veeam B&R?

Open Backup Infrastructure -> Managed Servers node and see whether those servers are shown there. Most likely, you've removed proxy role from them, while leaving the servers still added. Thanks!

Hi,
I had removed the proxys from Backup Proxys / remove.

If I open Open Backup Infrastructure -> Managed Servers I see a Proxy which is unavailable ( becase it was deleted from Infrastructure after the above Remove Proxy ).
If I will remove it, B&R told me, It can't be removed because of Jobs using this Proxy, but within the Jobs this Proxy isn't used.
What now ?

Might be some obsolete records in the database. Please contact technical support for cleanup.

Additionally, you can try a simple PS script:

Code: Select all

Asnp VeeamPSSNapin
Remove-VBRServer -Server (Get-VBRServer -name "Name of your server")
PS might not have the same verification checks and might allow you to remove the stalled server.

Thansk!

I tried it:

Code: Select all

Remove-VBRServer : Microsoft Windows Server '172.16.3.238' is used by the following jobs:
Daily_SQL02
daily_part04
daily_part02
daily_part01
daily_part03
Bei Zeile:1 Zeichen:17
+ Remove-VBRServer <<<<  -Server (Get-VBRServer -name "172.16.3.238")
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (:) [Remove-VBRServer], Exception
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : RemoveServerId,Veeam.Backup.PowerShell.Cmdlets.RemoveVBRServer
but... ?

Seems like PowerShell has the very same verification checks. Then, you have nothing else then reaching support team for further assistance. Thanks!

Support solved this Problem.

The removed Proxy has also an entry within the above Jobs ( Guest processing/Interacting Proxy ). After Remove this entry and we were able to remove the Proxy.

Thanks
Volker
