vmware replication clean up

Post by squirrelly » Apr 02, 2014 2:58 am

What are the steps to remove a replication job?

1. Can I delete the replicated virtual machine?
2. Can I delete the job?
3. Can I delete the replicas?
a. remove from replicas?
b. or remove from disk?


Is that the order?

Depending on what you are trying to achieve, you can either just remove a job, leaving the original VM and/or replica VM registereed in VI, or remove those as as well.

Do you mean removing the original VM from Veeam B&R console or "physically" removing it from VI?

Yes, you can delete the replication job by right-clicking it in the Veeam B&R UI and selecting the corresponding command. Replica VM will be left registered in VI.
squirrelly wrote:3. Can I delete the replicas?
a. remove from replicas?
This command will remove replica VM record from Veeam B&R database and UI.
squirrelly wrote: b. or remove from disk?
This command will "physically" remove replica VM from virtual environment (unregister it and delete its files from datastore).
