DELBACK

The DELBACK command is used to delete non-expired backups that were created by the BACKDSN command. Expired backups are automatically deleted by the life cycle process and backups created by a policy are deleted by the policy as part of the generation management process.

The user must have READ access to the Model9 Resource M9.CLI.DELBACK.

The deleted data set will be visible in the UI until a periodic synchronization, which by default, is performed automatically every 5 minutes. If needed, on-demand synchronization can be performed via the UI, by clicking the “SYNC WITH STORAGE” button in the “Agents” tab. See the Administration and User Guide for more information.

Warning

The DELBACK action cannot be undone.
