NOTE: vRanger maintains the existing VM notes in VMware® vCenter™, appending the replication status to the end.
This option enables the VMware® Tools when creating a snapshot. Use this flag if you are replicating a database server. During this process, vRanger freezes or pauses writes on supported applications to provide a consistent image of VSS-enabled databases. For more information, see Physical backup transport options.
If you want to change the Transport Failover order, click Modify. For more information, see Configuring transport failover options.
