Categorizing VMs

VM groups are automatically populated using the embedded Veeam ONE server and its Business View engine.

Tag-based Categorization

By default, Veeam ONE Monitor categorizes VMs into VM groups based on vCenter Server Tags — which dynamically group VMs by metadata attached in the vSphere inventory.

VM membership in these groups cannot be edited in the VAO UI — you must modify group properties in Veeam ONE Monitor, and/or modify tags in the vCenter environment.

For more information on grouping VMs using tags collected from the vCenter Server, see the Veeam Availability Orchestrator Categorization Guide.

Custom Categorization

If you want to create your own categories in Veeam ONE Monitor, you can disable tag-based categorization and group VMs using a Single Property and Multiple Conditions. Single-property categorization is based on VM properties specified within a hypervisor, while multiple-condition categorization allows to combine multiple conditions that evaluate VM properties for creating groups.

VM membership in these groups cannot be edited in the VAO UI — you must modify group properties in Veeam ONE Monitor.

For more information on grouping VMs using a single property and multiple conditions, see the Veeam Availability Orchestrator Categorization Guide.
