  2. Specify a job name and description
  3. Select VMs to back up
  4. Exclude objects from the backup job
  5. Define VM backup order
  6. Specify backup storage settings
  7. Specify advanced backup settings
  8. Specify secondary target
  9. Specify guest processing settings
  10. Define a job schedule
  11. Finish working with the wizard
