Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) allows you to delete Elastic Compute Service (ECS) backup clients, for example, clients for backing up files, SAP HANA databases, or SQL Server databases in ECS. This topic describes how to delete an ECS backup client in the HBR console if you no longer need the client.

Background information

After you delete an ECS backup client, the existing backup data is also deleted, and relevant in-progress backup and restore jobs will fail. Before you delete an ECS backup client, make sure that the backup data of this client is no longer needed and this client has no backup and restore jobs in progress.

Delete the backup client of an SQL Server instance
