The Failover Group dialog box appears.
- On the Enter the Group Name and Description page, name the policy, type a description, and then click Next.
- On the Source Virtualization Client page, from the Virtualization Client list, select a client, and then click Next.
- On the Select Machines page, configure the VMs to use in the failover group:
- To select some of the VMs from the list, click the box next to the VM name in the Client Machine column.
- To select all of the VMs in the list, click Select All.
- Click Next.
- On the Failover Configuration page, set the priority, failure, and interval options:
- In the Virtual Machine list under Priority, for each VM, select the order in which you want the destination VM to power on.
- To continue powering on VMs, according to priority settings, after a VM fails to power on, select Continue on Failure.
- To configure the time period to wait before powering on the next VM, next to Priority Interval, type or select the number of minutes.
