Step 3. Specify VM Configuration

In this article

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

    1. Click Choose to select an RHV cluster where the RHV backup proxy will be deployed.
    2. At the Name field, specify a name for the RHV backup proxy.
    3. Click Choose and select the storage domain where RHV backup proxy system files will be stored.
    4. 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.
    5. In the Max concurrent tasks field, specify the number of tasks that the RHV backup proxy will be able to handle in parallel. If this value is exceeded, the backup proxy will not start a new task until one of current tasks finishes.

    If you want to change the default value that is set to 4, consider RHV backup proxy system requirements and allocate additional resources to the VM:

    1. Click Advanced.
    2. In the Number of vCPU cores field of the Hardware Settings window, specify the number of virtual CPU cores that will be allocated to the RHV backup proxy.
    3. In the Memory size (GB) field, specify the memory size that will be allocated to the RHV backup proxy.
    4. Click OK to save the configuration.
    1. Click Next.

    Note

    After you deploy the RHV backup proxy, you will be not able to change the number of vCPU cores and RAM allocated to the RHV backup proxy in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. However, you can change the VM hardware configuration in the RHV Administration Portal. For more information, see Red Hat Product Documentation.
