Installing or removing the plug-in

Deploying the plug-in

You should install the plug-in on the VM that is running in the Nutanix AHV cluster. Throughout this document, this VM is referred to as the Backup Proxy. The Nutanix cluster is the collection of physical nodes that hosts the VMs — the plug-in is not installed on each of the protected VMs. One plug-in is enough to manage a multi-node cluster.
