Detaching Backup Repositories

Detaching a Backup Repository saves its data and metadata in a consistent state and stops the product's interaction with the repository (e.g. reading and writing of data or metadata). You may want to detach a Backup Repository in order to move it to a different location or to put the associated storage in maintenance.

As the product does not interact with detached repositories, jobs with detached Backup Repositories as target storage will fail.

To detach a Backup Repository, follow the steps below:

  1. From the main menu, click Settings.

  2. Go to the Repositories tab and hover over a Backup Repository.

  3. On the right side, click ••• and then click Detach.

    A Backup Repository cannot be detached if a job that backs up to this Backup Repository is running.

The Backup Repository is detached from the product. You can reattach the Backup Repository to NAKIVO Backup & Replication when needed.
