This topic describes the following sections:

Delete an instance or availability group

Before deleting an instance or availability group (AG), ensure that you have deleted all of its associated backup sets. After deleting all the backup sets, the instance or the AG is unconfigured from backup. If you are a cloud administrator, you can delete the instance or the AG at any time. If you are a group administrator, you can delete the instance or the AG that belongs to the administrator group that you manage. After you delete the instance or AG, Phoenix purges the backup data of that instance or AG from the warm storage, thus freeing up space. 

You can delete a server in the following scenarios:

  • You configured servers during evaluation, and you now want to reclaim the storage consumed.
  • You are planning to deprecate servers, and you no longer need to keep data.
  • You are planning to replace servers, and a backup of the replacement servers might consume additional storage for the same data.
  • You no longer want to back up a server.

To delete an availability group

  1. Log on to Phoenix Management Console.
  2. On the menu bar, click All Organizations, and select the required organization from the drop-down list.
  3. On the menu bar, click Protect > MS-SQL Servers
  4. Under the Instances/AGs tab, click the instance or AG that you want to delete. The availability group details page opens.
  5. Click Delete.

To delete an instance

  1. Log on to Phoenix Management Console.
  2. On the menu bar, click All Organizations, and select the required organization from the drop-down list.
  3. On the menu bar, click Protect > Windows/Linux Servers
  4. Under the All Servers tab, click the server associated with the instance that you want to delete. The Servers details page opens.
  5. Click More Actions > Delete.
Note: After deleting the instance or the AG, the time required for purging data depends on the size of data that was backed up. For large-sized datasets, Phoenix might take longer to complete a purge operation.
