  1. Install oVirt KVM Plug-in on the backup server.
  2. Perform initial configuration of Veeam Backup for OLVM and RHV:
  1. Configure backup repositories where Veeam Backup for OLVM and RHV will store backups of oVirt VMs.
  2. Add to the backup infrastructure the Virtualization manager that administers oVirt resources you want to protect.
  3. Deploy a backup appliance that will process backup and restore operations.
  4. Deploy dedicated workers that will transfer backup traffic.
