VeeamONE Business View TAG vSphere

Post by mng » Nov 05, 2015 11:00 am

Hi all,

I need help to use VeeamONE for tagging vSphere VMs and i need a validation :
Is that really possible to tag vSphere VMs from rules defined in Veeam Business View ?

Today, no tag are configured in vSphere and i need to configure VeeamOne (Business View) to tag all VM with specifics rules. Thereby, Veeam jobs can be configured to backup VMs with specifics tags.

For example, i need to backup all PoweredON VMs, with Windows OS, from specific datastore. Did i have to use dynamic rules or can i do that with static rules.
I don't really understand the Veeam ONE Business View logic...

Can someone help me to tag vSphere VMs ? I know i can use PowerCLI to tag them, but Business View seems to be more dynamic and viable for big infrastructure.

Hi,

Yes, that's possible to do, you can either tag VMs within BV or write tags to vCenter Server database. Please take a look at 5th use case for more detailed instructions > ONEbelievable tricks: Veeam ONE and Automation Services

Thanks!
