Step 2. Select VMs

In this article

    At the Assign VMs step of the wizard, specify VMs or a protection domain that you want to add to the snapshot job.

    Note

    If you add a protection domain to a snapshot-only job, AHV Backup Proxy creates a snapshot for each VM not a PD snapshot. For more information, see Nutanix AHV Snapshot Types.
