The Command Center uses a VM-centric approach for all hypervisors, but some hypervisors use the Indexing V2 feature to back up and recover VMs more efficiently. In Command Center, some job types and some back-end processing behave differently because the software uses Indexing V2. By default, VM-centric operations are enabled for all new hypervisors.
Users who are familiar with CommCell Console entities should consider the following differences in Command Center:
A virtualization client in the CommCell Console is equivalent to a hypervisor in the Command Center.
A subclient in the CommCell Console is equivalent to a VM group in the Command Center.
Control operations for individual VMs: back up, restore, and control jobs.
A backup operation for an individual VM runs as a VM Admin job.
Commvault automatically creates VM child jobs with unique IDs for each VM, and commits VM-specific backup data as each child job finishes.
Enable/disable activity including backups, restores, and data aging.
Configure security settings for individual VMs.
Delete individual VMs from a parent backup job.
Perform application-aware backups for individual VMs.
Configure replication for individual VMs from streaming or IntelliSnap backup operations.
