Editing Protection Group Settings

You can edit settings of a protection group. This operation may be required, for example, if you want to add/remove computers to/from a protection group or change settings for protected computers discovery and Veeam Agent deployment defined in the properties of the protection group.

Editing Protection Group Settings Note:

Consider the following:

  • You cannot change the type of a protection group when editing protection group settings.
  • For the Manually Added protection group, you can change only a limited number of settings. In particular, you can edit protected computers discovery and Veeam Agent deployment options (except for changing the distribution server for the protection group). You can also remove from this protection group computers that are no longer included in a Veeam Agent backup job.
  • You cannot edit settings of default protection groups that act as filters used to display protected computers of a specific type: Unmanaged, Out of Date, Offline and Untrusted.

To edit protection group settings:

  1. Open the Inventory view.
  2. In the inventory pane, expand the Physical & Cloud Infrastructure node.
  3. In the inventory pane, select the protection group that you want to edit and click Edit Group on the ribbon or right-click the protection group that you want to edit and select Properties.
  4. Edit protection group settings as required.
