Categorizing Resources

Restore recovery locations are automatically populated using the embedded Veeam ONE server and its Business View engine. By default, resources are categorized into resource groups based on both vCenter Server tags and custom categories configured in Veeam ONE Monitor. You can also group resources based on categorization data imported from 3rd party software.

Tag-Based Categorization

You can group resources based on vCenter Server tags that dynamically categorize objects by metadata attached in the vSphere inventory. Resource membership in these groups cannot be edited in the VAO UI — you must modify tags in the vSphere environment.

To learn how to group resources using tags collected from the vCenter Server, see the Veeam Availability Orchestrator Group Management Guide, section Tag-Based Categorization. To learn how to create tag categories and assign tags to infrastructure objects in the vSphere inventory, see VMware Docs.

Custom Categorization

You can create your own categories and resource groups using the functionality of Veeam ONE Monitor. Resource membership in these groups cannot be edited in the VAO UI — you must modify group properties in Veeam ONE Monitor. You can group resources using the following methods:

To learn how to group infrastructure objects in Veeam ONE Monitor, see the Veeam Availability Orchestrator Group Management Guide, sections Single-Parameter Categorization, Multiple-Condition Categorization and Categorization with Grouping Expressions.

Import-Based Categorization

You can synchronize Business View categorization data with categorization data from 3rd party software. If you have already categorized resources outside Veeam ONE Monitor, you can describe the categorization model using a CSV file and then import this file to Veeam ONE Monitor.  Resource membership in these groups cannot be edited in the VAO UI — you must modify categorization data in the CSV file and then import the file again.

To learn how to import categorization data using CSV files, see the Veeam Availability Orchestrator Group Management Guide, section Import-Based Categorization.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
