Step 3. Specify VM Configuration

At the Virtual Machine step of the wizard, do the following:

  1. Click Choose next to the Cluster field, and specify a Nutanix AHV cluster where the Nutanix AHV backup appliance is deployed in the Select Cluster window.

For a cluster to be displayed in the list of the available clusters, it must be added to the backup infrastructure as described in section Adding Nutanix AHV Cluster.

  1. Click Choose next to the Name field, and specify the VM running as the Nutanix AHV backup appliance in the Select Virtual Machine window.

Note

You cannot change the storage container – it is automatically populated when you select the VM

  1. In the Proxy description field, provide a description for future reference. The field already contains a default description with information about the user who added the proxy, date and time when the proxy was added.
  2. In the Max concurrent tasks field, specify the number of tasks that the Nutanix AHV backup appliance will be able to handle in parallel. If this value is exceeded, the backup proxy will not start a new task until one of the currently running tasks finishes. If you change the number of concurrent tasks, the wizard will automatically adjust the amount of resources allocated to the VM running as the  Nutanix AHV backup appliance.
