Step 3b. Choose Disks and Volume Groups

In the Virtual disks section of the Sources step of the wizard, you can instruct Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV to back up only specific virtual disks and volume groups related to the specified backup scope:

  1. Click Choose particular disks to protect.
  2. In the Specify disk protection rules window, click Add and select a resource that you have added to the backup scope at step 3a.
  3. Click Protect Disks > Protect Selected Disks Only.
  4. In the Protect Selected Disks Only window, choose a bus type of the disks that you want to back up, select the necessary disks and volume groups, and click Add.

Disks and volume groups that you do not select will be excluded from the backup job.


If you configure multiple disk protection rules, specific rules will override general ones. For example, if you add a rule for a protection domain and for a VM included in this domain, Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV will process the VM disks according to the rule configured for the VM.
