Creating Category and Groups Based on VCPU Count

In this article

    To create a category based on a single parameter, you will select a property as a categorization condition. Veeam ONE Client automatically creates groups for each unique value of the selected property. All VMs with the same property value will fall into one group.

    For this scenario you will categorize VMs based on vCPU count. To do that:

    1. Open Veeam ONE Client.

    For more information, see Accessing Veeam ONE Client.

    1. At the bottom of the inventory pane, click Business View.
    2. Launch the Add Category wizard. To do this:
    1. In the information pane, switch to the Categories tab.
    2. In the Actions pane, click Add Category.

    Alternatively, you can right-click anywhere in the inventory pane and choose Add Category from the shortcut menu.

    1. At the Name and Object Type step, enter a category name and make sure that Virtual Machine is selected as the object type.
