Step 2. Edit List of VMs

In this article

    At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, you can add or remove individual VMs or VM containers (for example, hosts or folders). You can also exclude individual VMs from VM containers (for example, if you need to replicate an entire VMware vSphere server except some machines running on this server).

    Adding VMs and VM containers

    To add a VM or VM container:

    1. Click Add.

    Step 2. Edit List of VMs 

    1. In the virtual infrastructure tree, select the necessary VMs or VM containers.

    If a VM is moved to the added container, the CDP policy will be automatically updated to include the moved VM.

    Step 2. Edit List of VMs 

    Tip

    To facilitate object selection, you can do the following:

    • Search for objects: type a name or part of a name in the search field. Specify the type of the object from a scroll list next to the search field.
    • Switch between virtual infrastructure views using the buttons in the top right corner: Hosts and Clusters, VMs and Templates, Datastores and VMs and Tags and VMs.
    1. Click OK to save the changes.

    Removing VMs and VM containers

    To remove a VM or VM container, select it in the list and click Remove.

    Excluding VMs from VM containers

    To exclude VMs from a VM container:

    1. Select a VM container in the list and click Exclusions.
    2. In the Exclusions window, click Add and select machines that you want to exclude.

    Changing Object Processing Order

    If specific objects must be processed first, you can change the object processing order. The object processing order can be helpful if you want to ensure that processing of an object does not overlap with other scheduled activities, or that it is completed before the certain time.

    To change the processing order, select the necessary objects and move them up or down the list using the Up and Down buttons on the right.

    Note

    • VMs inside a VM container are processed at random. To ensure that VMs are processed in the defined order, add them as standalone VMs, not as a part of containers.
    • The processing order may differ from the order that you have defined. For example, if resources of a VM that is higher in the priority are not available, and resources of a VM that is lower in the priority are available, the VM with the lower priority will be processed first.
    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
