Protecting AHV Backup Proxy VM

After you add a new AHV Backup Proxy, AHV Backup Proxy creates an autoprotection PD snapshot job. This job creates snapshots of the AHV Backup Proxy VM everyday at 22:00. In case of corruption or in case the AHV Backup Proxy VM is deleted, you can use these snapshots to restore the VM.

To restore the AHV Backup Proxy VM, you can use the Prism console or the AHV Backup Proxy console. For instructions, see:
