Step 3. Select VMs

At the Virtual Machines step of the wizard, specify the backup scope — choose whether you want to take snapshots of individual VMs or VMs included into protection domains.

  • If you select the Source > Virtual Machine option, you must specify the machines explicitly.
  • If you select the Source > Protection Domain option, Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV will regularly check for new VMs added to the domain and automatically update the job settings to include these VMs in the backup scope.

For a protection domain to be displayed in the list of the available domains, it must be configured in the Nutanix AHV cluster as described in Nutanix documentation.
