Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Step 3. Add VMs to Application Group

At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, add VMs to the created application group. You can add VMs from different sources:

  • VM backups
  • VM replicas
  • Storage snapshots

Veeam Backup & Replication supports mixed application groups. You can add VMs from backups, storage snapshots and VM replicas to the same application groups. Keep in mind the following limitations:

  • VMs must belong to the same platform — VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V.
  • VMs must have at least one valid restore point or must reside on a storage snapshot.
  • You cannot add the same VM twice. For example, if you add a VM from the storage snapshot, you will not be able to add the same VM from the backup.

To add VMs to the application group:

  1. Click Add VM and select From backups, From replicas or From storage snapshots.
  2. In the displayed window, expand the job or storage snapshot, select the VM and click Add.
  3. VMs in the list are specified in the order of their boot priority. To move a VM up and down in the list, select it and click Move Up or Move Down.
