  • VSA VM Clean-Up
    Posted: 03-24-2017, 7:10 AM

    We use VSA to backup our VM infrastructure. All VM's are automatically discoverd by VSA and appears as client in the CommVault Console. Not all VM's are part of a backup.

    However, if we completly delete a VM from ESX, then the Client will NOT automatically delete from the CommVault Console. We must delete them manually.

    Is it possible to delete old VM clients automatically from the CommVault Console, after they was deleted from the ESX Server, if there where no backups in Commvault of the client?

    Or exists a Clean-Up Job?

    Hi CLiX,

    deleted VMs are kept in the inventory for 30 days by default, after the last backup is aged.
    This can be modified / influenced in 

    Control Panel -> Media Management -> Data Aging

    "Number of days to keep deleted VMs"

    (not available in V10)

    have fun
