The Virtualization guided setup guides you through creating a server plan, adding a hypervisor, and adding a VM group.
Before You Begin
Complete the Core Setup Wizard.
Review the information in VMware Cloud Director: System Requirements.
Obtain user credentials for a VMware Cloud Director user with administrator privileges.
At least one machine must have the VSA installed. For more information, see VSA Proxies and File Recovery Enablers for Linux.
If the setup page is not displayed, from the navigation pane, click Guided setup.
After you complete the core setup, on the Protect tab, click the Virtualization tile.
On the Create server backup plan page, type a name for the plan, then provide information about storage, retention, and backup schedules. For more information, see Creating a Server Plan.
If you configured a server backup plan as part of the Core Setup, the wizard skips this page.
The Add hypervisor page appears. The options vary depending on the hypervisor type you select.

On the Add VM group page, type a descriptive name to identify the VM group, and then select virtual machines to be protected.
To finish, choose one of the following options:
Click Back up Now to perform an immediate backup of the virtual machines in the VM group (without requiring confirmation).
The Job details page appears and displays job status information.
Click Do it later to go to the hypervisor page without performing a backup.
