This functionality is available if you have selected Periodic copy at the Specify Job Name and Description step.
You can define the order in which the backup copy job must process machines. Configuring machines order can be helpful, if you want the backup copy job to process mission-critical machines first. For this, put these machines higher 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:
- At the Objects step of the wizard, select an object whose order you want to change.
- Use the Up and Down buttons on the right to move the object up or down in the list.
