Create a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Client

P12 Key Filename: Enter the file name for the P12 key.

Private Key's Password: Enter the password for the private key.

Storage Policy: From the Storage Policy list, select a storage policy to associate with the virtualization client. The storage policy you select is also associated with the default subclient that is created automatically for the virtualization client.


Add: Click to add proxies to the GCP client. You can add any computer as a proxy if it has Virtual Server Agent installed. You must add at least one proxy to the GCP client.

Remove: Click to remove proxies from the GCP client.

Clients / Client Groups: Displays the clients and/or client groups that are included as proxies in the virtualization client.

The first proxy in the list functions as a coordinator. During the backup, the coordinator communicates with available proxies and distributes the virtual machines across proxies for load balancing. It also distributes required resources (such as streams) among the proxies.

When a client group is included as a proxy, the first client in the client group functions as the coordinator.
