Virtual Machine Discovery and Filtering

For a new or existing subclient, you can define rules or select objects from the VRM to include or exclude virtual machines. You can also create filter rules to exclude virtual machine disks from backups.

Automatic discovery enables you to automatically select virtual machines for a subclient based on criteria such as a VM name pattern, guest OS, power state, server (host), or datastore.

Filtering enables you to exclude virtual machines based on similar criteria. You can define filters on a subclient (only applies to that subclient) or on a backup set (applies to all subclients under the backup set).

By combining automatic discovery and filtering, you can precisely target virtual machines to be included for each subclient.
