This article describes steps for archiving and removing a Rescue Agent. For an explanation of how Rescue Agents work, see SIRIS, ALTO, and NAS: Create Rescue Agent.
- Datto SIRIS
Once a disaster recovery is complete and a rescue agent is no longer needed, you should archive the Rescue Agent so it no longer takes backups, and eventually remove the Rescue Agent to free up resources on your Datto device.
Archiving a Rescue Agent
Archiving prevents the Rescue Agent from creating any new backups, but preserves the previous backup data so that it can be restored in an emergency.
1. Navigate to the Restore Tab → Manage Rescue Agent and Archive the Rescue Agent
Removing a Rescue Agent
1. To remove the Rescue Agent, navigate to the Protect Tab. If you archived the agent first, you'll need to click Show Archived to see your archived agents.
2. Click Remove Rescue Agent.
3. You will need to enter the phrase to verify that you want to remove the data permanently. Enter this phrase exactly as specified to enable the DELETE button
