Backup > Configuring a backup job > Starting the Backup Wizard

The first step to creating a vRanger backup job is to select the inventory node — physical server, VMware® vCenter™, host, backup group, and so on — that you want to back up. After selecting the node, you may start the Backup Wizard as described in the following procedures.
You may also create a custom grouping consisting of multiple physical servers or of existing objects from multiple hosts or vCenters. For more information, see Adding a custom backup group. Backup groups are treated the same as any other inventory node when it comes to creating backup jobs.
IMPORTANT: A backup group must contain only physical objects, only Hyper-V® objects, or only VMware® objects. You cannot combine VMware, Hyper-V, and physical objects into a single backup group.
When working in the My Inventory view, starting the Backup Wizard creates a job to back up the selected inventory node or backup group. If a node s not selected, the Add icon on the toolbar is disabled.
1
In the My Inventory view, click the appropriate tab, VMware, Hyper-V, Physical, or vCloud, and then select the preferred node to select the object or backup group.
With the preferred inventory node selected, click the Add drop-down menu, and then click Backup Job.
The Backup Wizard starts.
3
In the Job Name field, enter a name for the backup job.
4
[Optional] In the Job Description field, enter a description for the backup job.
5
Click Next.
NOTE: If your selected inventory node contains only one server, skip to Including hard disks of physical machines or VMs. If your selected node contains multiple servers (such as a backup group or host), proceed to Excluding VMs.
1
In the My Jobs view, click one of the following nodes to enable the Add drop-down menu:
2
Click the Add drop-down menu, and then click Backup Job.
3
On the Inventory Node Selection page, click the VMware, Hyper-V, Physical, or vCloud tab.
TIP: To back up a custom backup group, expand the Backup Groups pane, and then select the group of nodes displayed.
5
In the Job Name field, enter a name for the backup job.
6
[Optional] In the Job Description field, enter a description for the backup job.

Excluding VMs

Previous Next



NOTE: If you selected a node that includes multiple servers — such as a backup group or host — and multiple VMs, the next page in the Backup Wizard is the Virtual Machine Exclusion page. This page is followed by the Hard Disk Inclusion page. If you selected a single VM or are backing up physical servers, you see only the Hard Disk Inclusion page.
1
In the Exclude column on the left, select the VMs you want to exclude from the backup job.

Click Next.

Including hard disks of physical machines or VMs

Previous Next


Backup > Configuring a backup job > Including hard disks of physical machines or VMs

When protecting a VM, the Current Virtual Machines pane lists the servers included in the backup job, based on your selections in the Excluding VMs procedure. The Include Hard Disks pane represents the maximum number of disks configured for any server in the job. For example, if you have a backup job with multiple single-disk servers and one server with six disks, the Include Hard Disks column shows six entries. Selecting “Hard Disk 1” through “Hard Disk 6” tells vRanger to back up every disk for each server.
If, in the preceding example, the six-disk server receives an extra disk, that disk is not going to be backed up, because only six disks are included in the rule. To allow for future growth, the Show all disk possibilities option lets you select all potential disks; selecting this option ensures that any disk added to a server in the future is included in the backup job.
1
In the Include Hard Disks pane, select the disks that vRanger should include in the rule it applies to each server.
2
[Optional] If you want to allow for additional disks in the future, select Show all disk possibilities, and select additional disks.
