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 an RHV cluster where the RHV backup appliance will be 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 RHV environment as described in Red Hat Virtualization documentation.

  1. In the Name field, specify a name for the RHV backup appliance.
  2. Click Choose next to the Storage Domain field, and specify a storage domain where RHV backup appliance system files will be stored in the Select Storage Domain window.

For a domain to be displayed in the list of the available domains, it must be configured in the RHV environment as described in Red Hat Virtualization documentation.

  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 appliance, date and time when the appliance was added.
  2. In the Max concurrent tasks field, specify the number of tasks that the embedded worker will be able to handle in parallel. If this value is exceeded, the embedded worker will not start a new task until one of the currently running tasks finishes.

The default number of concurrent tasks is set to 4. When you change this value, the wizard automatically adjusts the amount of resources that will be allocated to the VM running as the RHV backup appliance. If you want to specify the amount of resources manually, click Advanced. In the advanced settings, you can also enable warnings that will be added to backup job sessions when CPU or RAM consumption breaks the thresholds you specify.
