Adding vCenters or hosts: Before you can begin backups, you must add one or more VMware® vCenter™ or ESXi™ servers to the vRanger inventory. To add a vCenter, you must have credentials with Administrator access to the vCenter, along with root-level credentials for each host managed by the vCenter. vRanger provides the option to exclude hosts from the vRanger inventory, which also excludes them from licensing.
Adding repositories: Repositories are where vRanger stores the savepoints created by each backup job. For the purposes of this integration, an EMC® Data Domain® Boost (DD Boost™) repository should be used.
