Step 8. Specify VM Protection Options

At the Protect VM Groups step of the wizard, use the Protect VM Groups after recovery check box to choose whether you want to protect VMs in the plan post-recovery with a backup or replication job.

If you select the Protect VM Groups after recovery check box, you must specify a backup or replication job to be used as a template for a new job that will reprotect recovered VMs. To do that, from the Template Job list, select the required job.

For a template backup or replication job to be displayed in the Template Job list, it must be created and included into the list of inventory items for the scope, as described in section Editing Template Jobs.

Important

The new job will consume Veeam Backup & Replication licenses to protect the VM replicas. That is why you must take into account the number of licenses installed on the Veeam Backup & Replication server, so that the number of actually managed objects does not exceed the license limit.
