Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Step 6. Define Machines Processing Order

You can define the order in which the backup copy job must process machines. Setting machines order can be helpful, for example, if you have added some mission-critical machines to the job and want the job to process them first. You can set these machines first in the 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 machine processing order:

  1. At the Objects step of the wizard, select a virtual or physical machine, or VM container added to the job.
  2. Use the Up and Down buttons on the right to move the virtual or physical machine, or VM container up or down in the list.
