VM Guest OS File Indexing

To specify VM guest OS indexing options for a VM:

  1. At the Guest Processing step of the wizard, click Indexing.
  2. Select a VM in the list and click Edit > Windows indexing or Linux indexing.
  3. Specify the indexing scope:
    • Select Disable indexing if you do not want to index guest OS files of the VM.
    • Select Index everything if you want to index all VM guest OS files.
    • Select Index everything except if you want to index all VM guest OS files except those defined in the list. By default, system folders are excluded from indexing. You can add or delete folders using the Add and Remove buttons on the right. You can also use system environment variables to form the list, for example: %windir%, %ProgramFiles% and %Temp%.

To reset the list of folders to its initial state, click Default.

    • Select Index only following folders to define folders that you want to index. You can add or delete folders to index using the Add and Remove buttons on the right. You can also use system environment variables to form the list, for example: %windir%, %ProgramFiles% and %Temp%.

VM Guest OS File Indexing Note:

[For Linux VMs] To perform guest OS file indexing, Veeam Backup & Replication requires several utilities to be installed on the Linux VM: openssh, mlocate, gzip and tar. If these utilities are not found, Veeam Backup & Replication will prompt you to deploy them on the VM guest OS.

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