Enabling IntelliSnap Backups

Enable IntelliSnap backups to use Azure Stack Hub snapshot capabilities.


To enable IntelliSnap support, perform the following tasks:

  1. Configure storage as described in Configuring a Cloud Storage. Specify an Azure virtual machine as the MediaAgent.
  2. Add the hypervisor as described in Adding a Hypervisor.
  3. Create a server plan as described in Create a server plan.
  4. Create a VM group and select the IntelliSnap option.
  5. 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.)
