You have already post this problem in

DON'T post the same problem multiple times. You should also realise that this is a weekend and not many people are monitoring the forum.  If you need urgent help, then open a support case with Symantec.

...I used to have to manually remove MMS servers from my CASO I used to look after by editing the registry. Will find the details and post back in the morning.

Thanks!

Hi,

You can try the steps below to edit the CASO from the MMS's registry. Be aware that if you have delegated jobs from the CASO to the MMS (meaning you've probably centralised your catalogs) you're most likely looking at recreating your jobs! Whatever you do, grab a copy of the registry before doing anything:

* regedit.exe --> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> SOFTWARE --> Symantec --> Backup Exec

* Look for a key called Database Server.

* Change the server name in there from your CASO to the MMS.

* Restart the MMS services thereafter.

Thanks!

Yes it will, and no you can't. It's not simply a case of "hiding" the MMS from the CASO. It's either managed and shows up, or removed and it won't show up. There is unfortunately no inbetween.

Thanks!

...then I'd suggest opening a call with Symantec to get this edited out of the BEDB.

Thanks!
