You can define the order in which the backup copy 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 part of the VM container.
To define VM backup order:
- At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, select a VM or VM container added to the job.
- Use the Up and Down buttons on the right to move the VM or VM container up or down in the list.
