Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Before You Begin

Before you create a VM copy job, check the following prerequisites:

  • Backup infrastructure components that will take part in the VM copying process must be added to the backup infrastructure and properly configured. These include the source ESX(i) host and server or backup repository on which you plan to store the VM copy.
  • The target storage device must have enough free space to store created VM copies. To receive alerts about low space on the storage device, configure global notification settings. For more information, see Specifying Other Notification Settings.
  • If you plan to use pre-freeze and/or post-thaw scripts, you must create scripts before you configure the VM copy job.

Mind the following limitations:

  • Due to Microsoft limitations, you cannot use Microsoft Azure Active Directory credentials to perform application-aware processing on VMs running Microsoft Windows 10.
  • If you use tags to categorize virtual infrastructure objects, check limitations for VM tags. For more information, see VM Tags.
