Unplugging EBS from SharePoint

You may want to unplug EBS from SharePoint. To do so, follow these steps:
Note: If you are planning to unplug EBS from SharePoint then make sure that no storage provider is already configured. If you wish to unplug EBS, first remove all the Storage Profiles.
  • Go to the "Central Administration" page and click on the "Application Management" tab.
  • Under "StorageEdge Management", click on "Storage Optimization".
  • Click on EBS/RBS Configuration under Storage Optimization.
  • Click on the "Unplug EBS" button on the top.
  • On the next page that appears, the list of Storage Profiles in a scope of EBS will be listed with different options. Before un-plugging the EBS users are supposed to move the content from EBS to RBS. Here user has the choice to either remove the profile with its content or convert the profile to RBS profile or leave the profile as it is for later use with EBS settings.

  • On the next page, check off the "Automatically reset IIS" check box and then click the "Unplug" button.
  • Removing a Storage Profile requires reverting all its content to the SharePoint database. You can use the Revert Content To Database job to do this.
  • Unplugging the EBS requires IIS reset to take effect.
