Step 6. Define VM Replication Order

You can define the order in which the replication job must process VMs. 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.

VMs inside a VM container are processed at random. To ensure that VMs are processed in the defined order, you must add them as standalone VMs, not as a part of the VM container.

To define VM replication order:

  1. At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, select a VM or VM container.
  2. Use the Up and Down buttons on the right to move the VM or VM container up or down in the list.

Step 6. Define VM Replication Order Note:

If you enable parallel data processing, VMs may be processed in a different order. For example, if backup infrastructure resources for a VM that is higher on the priority list are not available, and resources for a VM that is lower on the list are available, Veeam Backup & Replication will start processing the VM that is lower on the list first.

If you enable the Allow processing of multiple VMs with a single volume snapshot option in the job 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.
