|Product:||Veeam Backup & Replication | 11|
The tenant of Cloud Provider needs to remove missing restore points from a backup chain stored in a Cloud Repository. The Forget and Remove operations that are available for local backup chains are not available for cloud backup chains.
A restore point can become unavailable, for example, if the backup repository is not available or a backup file is missing in the backup chain. Backup chains that contain missing restore points get corrupted — you cannot perform backup or restore VM data from the missing restore point and restore points that depend on the missing restore point.
Starting with Veeam Backup & Replication v11 (184.108.40.2065), two PowerShell cmdlets were created, allowing a Service Provider to find and then forget those missing restore points for a specific tenant.
(Usage examples are available in the User Guide)
These PowerShell steps are to be performed by the Service Provider on their Veeam Backup & Replication Cloud Connect server.
Important: Any restore points that are located on a repository or extent that is inaccessible or in maintenance mode, will be considered as unavailable. A Service Provider should always check the list of Unavailable Files found using Get-VBRCloudUnavailableBackupFile to ensure the correct files will be forgotten.
$tenant = Get-VBRCloudTenant -Name "ABC Company" $backupfiles = Get-VBRCloudUnavailableBackupFile -CloudTenant $tenant $backupfiles
