Before you create plans and add recovery locations in Veeam Availability Orchestrator (VAO), you must categorize infrastructure objects into groups. VM groups will be used to build and edit VAO plans, and resource groups will be used to configure recovery locations.
Categorization is performed in Veeam ONE Monitor, a component of the embedded Veeam ONE server. The embedded Veeam ONE server is installed with the VAO server, and is responsible for gathering inventory details, object properties and tags. This information is further used for organizing VMs, hosts, clusters, datastores and datastore clusters into groups.
To categorize infrastructure objects into groups, configure connections to the required virtual infrastructure servers in the VAO UI. All servers connected to VAO automatically become available in Veeam ONE Monitor. After you create groups in Veeam ONE Monitor, these groups will be populated in the VAO UI.
