Disable external backup for an instance

Disabling external backups does not remove any external backups that have been created previously. After disabling external backups, you can remove them individually or choose to remove all external backups.

Complete the following steps to disable external backups:

  1. Log in to the ThinkAgile CP Cloud Controller as an infrastructure admin or VDC manager user.
  2. Navigate to the details page for your application instance, and click the Backups tab.
  3. Click Set Up Backups.
