Associate the plan with a VM group.
When you enable IntelliSnap on a VM group, Commvault automatically creates the following configurations:
Schedule policies are created for the primary (snap) and backup copies.
The server backup plan associated with the VM group has IntelliSnap enabled and is set to retain eight snap recovery points. (You can modify the server plan to specify a different number of snaps to retain.)
