Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Adding VMware vSphere Servers

You must add to the backup infrastructure VMware vSphere servers that you plan to use as source and target for backup, replication and other activities.

You can add VMware vCenter Servers and ESX(i) hosts. If an ESX(i) host is managed by a VMware vCenter Server, it is recommended that you add the VMware vCenter Server, not a standalone ESX(i) host. If you move VMs between ESX(i) hosts managed by the VMware vCenter Server, you will not have to re-configure jobs in Veeam Backup & Replication. Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically locate migrated VMs and continue processing them as usual.

To add a VMware vSphere server, use the New VMware Server wizard.

  1. Launch the New VMware Server wizard
  2. Specify a server name or address
  3. Specify credentials
  4. Specify SSH settings
  5. Finish working with the wizard
