Step 3. Select VMs to Replicate

In this article

    At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, select VMs or VM containers that you want to replicate:

    1. Click Add.
    2. In the Add Object window, select the necessary VMs or VM containers and click Add.

    If you select VM containers (hosts, clusters, folders, resource pools, VirtualApps or datastores) and add new VMs to this container in future, Veeam Backup & Replication will update CDP policy settings automatically to include these VMs.

    Note

    Even if you add VM containers to a CDP policy, only VM are replicated. VM templates, Vm logs, folders and so on are not replicated.

    You can use the toolbar at the top right corner of the window to switch between views. Depending on the view you select, some objects may not be available. For example, if you select the VMs and Templates view, no resource pools, hosts or clusters will be displayed in the tree.

    Important

    Mind the following:

    • You can replicate only VMs that are turned on, the turned off VMs will be skipped from processing.
    • You cannot add to a CDP policy VMs that were already added to other CDP policies created on the same backup server.
    • We recommend to add not more than 50 VMs or 200 virtual disks in one CDP policy.

    To quickly find the necessary VMs, you can use the search field at the bottom of the Add Object window. If you want to switch between types of VMs you want to search through, use the button to the left of the search field.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
