The following configuration tasks are required for application-aware backups:
Specifying credentials that can be used to access VMs that run applications.
You can configure credentials for the hypervisor, for a VM group, or for specific VMs.
Configuring a VM group for each application, to identify the VMs that need to be protected using application-aware backups.
The virtual machines that need to be protected depend on the application.
Depending on your requirements, you might need to perform other configuration tasks.
