Viewing Hypervisor and VM Group Details

The Hypervisors tab for the virtualization solution displays the list of configured hypervisors. You can use the Hypervisors tab to add or view hypervisor information, to access VM groups for a specific hypervisor, or to check job status.

To access the page from the navigation pane, go to Protect > Virtualization. The Hypervisors tab displays virtualization clients, the VM groups tab displays VM or instance groups, and the Virtual machines tab shows virtual machines for all hypervisors.

Hypervisors Page

From the main Hypervisors page, you can perform the following actions:

  • Click Add hypervisor to configure a new hypervisor.
  • Click an entry in the Name column to view hypervisor details.
  • Under the Actions column, click the action button action_button in the row for the hypervisor and select one of the following options:
    • Click Jobs to view all jobs.
    • Click Delete to delete the hypervisor (confirmation is required for this action).
    • Click Send logs to collect log information for a support case.

Hypervisor Properties Page

When you select a specific hypervisor, you can view details for the hypervisor or change the configuration.

From the hypervisor details page, you can perform the following actions:

  • Click Send logs to collect log information for a support case.
  • Click Jobs at the top right to view all jobs for the hypervisor.
  • In the top right corner of the page, click the menu icon , and then click Edit hypervisor details to change the host name, user name, or password.
  • Click the menu icon , and then click Delete to delete this hypervisor entry.

    Deleting a hypervisor also deletes all backups for the hypervisor.

  • Click in the SLA diagram to display details about RPO or RTO.
  • Click in the VM status or instance status diagram to display information about virtual machines on the hypervisor.

Hypervisor Overview

The Overview tab provides the following information:

  • SLA: The percentage and number of VMs that met or missed the recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) for the hypervisor.
  • VM status or instance status: The number of virtual machines or instances that are protected (backed up), not protected, or backed up with errors. Click in the graph to view reports.
  • VM groups: What VM groups are configured.

VM Groups

In the VM groups area you can perform the following actions:

  • Click Add VM group to create a new group of virtual machines to back up.
  • Click a VM group to view or modify VM group settings.
  • Under the Actions column for the VM groups area, you can click the action button action_button in the row for the VM group and select one of the following options:
    • Click Backup to perform an immediate backup of the virtual machines in the VM group.
    • Click Restore to recover data from the VM group on the same row.

      The Restore action is only displayed if a successful backup has been performed for a VM group.

    • Click Jobs to view job information for the VM group on the same row.
    • Click Delete to remove a VM group. You are then asked to confirm this action. Deleting a VM group also deletes all backups for the VM group. You cannot delete a default VM group.
