  • Delete/remove/age one server from vmware subclient already backedup.

    Hi all.

     

    Is it possible to delete or remove one vmware server from a subclient containing multiple vmware servers from the data already backed up?

     

    I have a server which no longer exists in our vmware environment and I want to remove it from the backed up data. The server was backed up with a 5years extended backup policy. I do not want to delete the subclient, as all other servers will be removed, just this one server we do not want to use backup space on.

    Backup data are not on tape but in a disklib.

     

    Thanks

    It is not possible to remove just one VM from the backed up data.

    If I go to "Home->Control Panel->Client Computer Filter" and tick "Show Virtual Machines" I get all the virtual machines under the view "Client Computers"

    Here I can find the Vmware servers I want to delete (grayed out) and if I right click and chose delete I get a prompted as expected "This operation will permanently delete all data associated with this level and any backup data will not be able to be restored" and after that I get the "to confirm this action, type "erase and reuse media" below"

     

    Can I expect that the data will be deleted or does this not change anything?

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    With the new VSA implementation, it is possible to delete individual VM's data and delete the VM client as well. Can you please set up a call with the customer to discuss and enable this in their environment?

     

    Thanks,
