To use the Virtual Server Agent with Nutanix AHV, you must configure a virtualization client for the Nutanix AHV cluster, and enable IntelliSnap.

When you configure the virtualization client, a default backup set and a default subclient are created automatically.

You can back up all virtual machines using the default subclient, or you can create a new subclient to back up a specific subset of virtual machines.

Important: For application-consistent backups, each virtual machine must reside in a separate consistency group. If a subclient includes a consistency group that contain multiple VMs, then the backup for those VMs will be crash consistent not application consistent.
