Excluding VMs from Recovery Point Objective (RPO)


On this page

You can exclude deleted VMs from the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) calculation on the Recovery Readiness Report. This can increase the percentage of clients that meet the RPO.

The Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is still applicable for deleted VMs. This procedure affects only the RPO calculation.


  1. Make VMs appear as client computer nodes in the CommCell Browser.

    For instructions, see Displaying Virtual Machines in the CommCell Browser.

  2. In the CommCell Browser, on each VM client computer node, use the Exclude from SLA and Strike Counts option to exclude individual VMs from the RPO calculation.

    For instructions, see Excluding Clients from SLA and Strike Counts.
