Step 6. Specify VM Replication Order
At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, click Up and Down to change the processing order. VMs at the top of the list have a higher priority and will be processed first.
Setting VM order can be helpful, for example, if you have added some mission-critical VMs to the job and want the job to process them first. You can set these VMs first in list to ensure that their processing fits the backup window.
Consider the following:
If you enable the Allow processing of multiple VMs with a single volume snapshot option in the Advanced Replica Settings, VMs may also be processed in a different order. This option unites VMs added to the job in several groups, and the defined VM order may be broken.
