Deleting SQL Databases from Default Subclients

You can delete discovered databases from a default subclient. When databases that are automatically discovered are deleted from the SQL Server, the databases are removed from the default subclient during the next backup operation.

Databases that were manually added to the default subclient are not automatically removed if they are deleted from the SQL Server. You must manually remove them from the subclient so that the next backup job is completed without any errors.

You can also delete the manually discovered databases from the default subclients by creating the additional setting nIgnoreNonExistentDB. This method is similar to deleting the databases from the user-defined subclients.

For more information, see Deleting Databases from User-Defined Subclients.
