Removing a machine

When you remove a machine from protection on the Rapid Recovery Core, you are presented with two options: you can keep the recovery points saved thus far to the Core, or you can remove the recovery points.

If you keep the recovery points, you have what is known as a “recovery points only” machine. Restore and mount operations continue to be available from the recovery points captured from the machine when it was under protection. However, backups for the protected machine no longer continue.

If you remove the recovery points, this action deletes any snapshot data for that formerly protected machine from the Rapid Recovery Core.

Complete the steps in the following procedure to remove a machine from protection in your Rapid Recovery environment.

  1. From the Rapid Recovery Core Console, in the left navigation pane under Protected Machines, click the machine you want to remove.
  2. On the Summary page for the relevant machine, click Remove Machine.
  3. In the dialog box, if you want to also delete all recovery points for this machine from the repository, select Remove with recovery points.
  4. To confirm your choice to remove the machine, click Yes.

    Caution: If you delete recovery points, you will no longer be able to restore data for that machine.

    Rapid Recovery removes the machine from protection and cancels all active tasks for that machine.
