Validating a VM Group or a Specific VM for VMware

You can perform validation automatically as part of the schedule for the VM group, or by requesting validation for a recovery point, either for a VM group that has validation enabled or for a specific VM.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Virtualization.

    The Virtual machines page appears.

Validating a VM group

  1. On the VM groups tab, click a VM group that is configured for backup validation.

    The VM group properties page appears.

  2. On the Overview tab, in the Recovery point section, click a highlighted date, and then select the time that represents a recovery point of the backup to validate.
  3. Click Validate backup.

When you confirm the request, a Virtual Machine Management job runs to validate the backups for all of the VMs in the group.
