we have a few VM Groups which I want to disable and exclude from the Schedule. The VM Groups are associated to a Server Plan. If I disable the Backup of the VM Group the Backup Schedule will start the Backup like for the other associated Clients but will fail in the end.

Is there a way to disable the VM Grroup and keep the Backups and also disable the VM Group from being triggered by the Schedule?

The Job is also visible as Failed in the Job List and all the Reports which is a little bit confusing.

Kind Regards

We don’t suggest to change the associations from the Commcell console if the associations are made with plans

You can remove the association from the plan level and monitor the environment.

How can I remove the association from the plan? I only can change to a different plan in the VM Group. 

Can I still restore after I change the association?

You can go to adminconsole>Manage>Plan and go to associations

Im not sure If my question is out of thread scope, but I’m looking a way to delete a VM group.
I cant find any option, at least from CommCell.
