Application-aware Image Processing Settings

If you want to create a transactionally consistent backup or replication ensuring successful recovery of machine applications without any data loss, take the following steps:

  1. Select the Enable application-aware image processing check box.
  2. Click the Customize Applications button.
  3. To define custom settings for a machine in the list, select it and click Edit. Consider the following:
  • To customize settings of a machine added to the job as part of a container, the machine should be included in the list as a standalone instance. For that, click Add Machine and select a machine whose settings you want to customize. Next, select the machine in the list and click Edit to define the necessary custom settings.
  • To discard custom settings of a machine, select the machine in the list and click Remove.
  1. Configure the necessary settings for the selected application server, as described in the paragraphs that follow.

File Exclusions

On the File Exclusions tab, specify whether to exclude or include specific files in the backup. Exclusions can help to decrease the backup file size. However, remember that selective processing takes additional time that depends on the number of excluded files; also, it requires obtaining per-file metadata (stored in backups). Thus, it is recommended to use this option for excluding large files. By default, exclusions are disabled.

Click Add and specify what files and folders you want to include or exclude.

Application-aware Image Processing Settings 

To form the list of exclusions or inclusions, you can use full paths to files and folders, environmental variables and file masks with the asterisk (*) and question mark (?) characters. For more information, see VM Guest OS File Exclusion section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
