Hi,

we have to servers. One is a server 2012 R2 which is our Hyper-V host (8 VMs). The second server is the replikation-server (Server 2012 R2).
We set up Replikation for all VMs with hourerly recovery points and 24 h for storing them.
Now our replication server is running out of space.
I configured for the less important VMs to only hold the last recovery-point.
I thought, that it immidiatly kills the not wanted older r-points. But the replication still pauses, because of not enough space...

How can i manually kill the older recovery-points ?

Thanks
