SIRIS, ALTO. and NAS: Removing a Hypervisor connection



This article discusses removing a hypervisor connection from your Datto device.


  • Datto SIRIS
  • Agentless backups


Datto appliances require a hypervisor connection to perform agentless backups. If a connection to the hypervisor is no longer needed, you can remove the connection in the device UI under ConfigureHypervisor Connections.

You can remove a hypervisor connection by clicking the trash can icon on the far right of the hypervisor listing.

Removing a hypervisor connection will break the link with the agentless systems on your Datto device that use that connection and backups for those systems will fail. When you click the trash can icon, the device will display a warning modal that will display the number of systems that are currently using that hypervisor connection.
