Filtering a List of VMs

You can create a text file that contains a list of virtual machines to be excluded from backups.


  1. Create a text file named VMFilters.cvf.
  2. Enter a list of VMs to be filtered from backups, with each VM on a separate line in the following format:


    The vm_name is optional.

  3. On the VSA proxy, copy the file containing the list of VMs to be filtered in the \iDataAgent\JobResults\ folder under your Commvault software installation path.

When you run a backup, the backup automatically checks for the VMFilters.cvf file in the JobResults folder, and filters the listed VMs from the backup.
