Removing a Storage Profile

User can remove a Storage Profile to prevent its access from EBS/RBS or remove its content from the EBS/RBS. To remove a particular Storage Profile, here are the steps:
  • Click on the Application Management tab on Central Administration page.
  • Click on Storage Optimization under StorageEdge Management.
  • Click on Externalizer Profiles under Storage Optimization.
  • Click on a Storage Profile you wish to remove. Choose Remove from the dropdown menu.
  • When you choose to remove a Storage Profile, you will see a warning message on a new page saying that "Removing this storage profile would cause all the content to be reverted back to SharePoint database. A revert content job will be immediately executed and content will no longer be externalized for this storage profile". For this you need to configure the "Revert BLOB Content To Database" job. All the Storage Profile content will be reverted back to the SharePoint database and the content will no longer be available in external store.
  • To schedule this job, you are supposed to enable the job and specify the Server, Date and Time for the job to run.
  • You can enable "Reschedule if terminated before completion" option to reschedule the Revert job if it is not completed properly. To reschedule the job you need to set the interval for that job.
  • "Enable job throttling" option will apply the already configured throttling settings for this job. "Edit Settings" will jump you to the Job Throttling page, where you can reconfigure the speed for this job.
  • Click Continue if you wish to proceed.
* When you choose to remove a Storage Profile, the process of removing will start immediately and it may take some time depending on the size of the content in your Storage Profile.
* While the Storage Profile is being removed, you will see a message "Pending Remove" beside the Storage Profile name till the content has not been successfully reverted to the SharePoint database.
