This example describes how to dynamically group VMs by guest OS.

To group VMs by their guest OSes:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Business View.
  2. Create a category with the following properties:
  • Friendly name: Guest OS
  • Group type: Dynamic
  • Object type: VM

For details on creating categories, see Creating Categories.

  1. Choose to create dynamic groups within the new category and specify the following grouping expression:


The expression returns the VM guest OS name, and includes the VM to a group with this name.

For details on creating dynamic groups, see Creating Dynamic Groups.

As a result, the Guest OS category will display a list of groups for VMs divided by the guest OSes.
