Step 5. Exclude Objects from Replication Job

After you have added VMs and VM containers to the job, you can specify which objects you want to exclude from replicas. You can exclude the following types of objects:

To exclude VMs from a VM container:

  1. At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, click Exclusions.
  2. Click the VMs tab.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Use the toolbar at the top right corner of the window to switch between views: Hosts and Clusters, Hosts and Volumes, VMs and Tags, VM Groups.

Mind that VMs can be arranged in VM groups only on Microsoft Hyper-V hosts version 2016 or later.

  1. Select the object and click Add. Use the Show full hierarchy check box to display the hierarchy of all Hyper-V Servers added to Veeam Backup & Replication.
  2. Click OK.

Step 5. Exclude Objects from Replication Job 

To exclude VM disks:

  1. At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, click Exclusions.
  2. Click the Disks tab.
  3. Select the VM in the list and click Edit. If you want to exclude disks of a VM added as a part of the container, click Add to include the VM in the list as a standalone object.
  4. Choose disks that you want to replicate. You can choose to process all disks, 0:0 disks (typically, the system disks) or add to the list custom IDE and SCSI disks.

Note

If you exclude disks from a backup and enable application-aware processing, Veeam Backup & Replication will still perform application-aware processing for the excluded disks. This means that VSS will process disk data.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

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