Importing Categorization Model from vCenter Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager

In this article

    You can import categorization model from vCenter Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

    When you enable synchronization of categorization data from virtualization servers, Veeam ONE Client imports tags and custom properties and creates categories and groups according to the values of imported tags and properties. Every time data collection runs, Veeam ONE Client overwrites created categories and groups to keep categorization data in synchronization with vCenter Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

    Note:

    Consider the following:

    • Categories imported from vCenter Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager are read-only, you cannot edit or delete them. To remove such categories from Business View tree, disable the option in Server Settings. For more information on Business View Server Settings, see Business View.
    • If Veeam ONE detects tags and custom properties with names that are already assigned to categories in Business View, it will exclude such tags and properties from synchronization.
    • While in categorization model imported from vCenter Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager, if you create a new category, you will not be able to export it to tags.

    To import tags and custom properties:

    1. Open Veeam ONE Client.

    For details, see Accessing Veeam ONE Client.

    1. On the toolbar, click Settings > Server Settings.

    Alternatively, press [CTRL + S] on the keyboard.

    1. In the Server Settings window, open the Business View tab.
