Cannot see the option to decommission the EBR in NMC after 8.2.1 > 8.2.2 upgrade

Jump to solution

Hi everyone!

After upgrading NetWorker server to 8.2.2 from 8.2.1 we can no longer see the choice to decommission the EBR (backup appliance) when we right click it in NMC.

Does anyone else have the same problem? Is it possible to decommission the appliance by CLI on the NetWorker server instead of NMC?

Cheers,

Erik

I got the following answer from EMC support the other day.

The decommission option has been removed from the Networker interface, because of its destructive and irreversible affect it has on the Networker environment. With this when a customer wants to remove/decommission a VBA from Networker, they will need the assistance of EMC support.

As quoted in the NetWorker-9.0-VMware-Integration-Guide:

“Decommissioning the VMware Backup Appliance in NMC Decommissioning should be done only with the help of EMC Support”.
