Using Tags to Add Servers to Backup Job

Veeam Logoby Thorvain » Thu Feb 18, 2016 5:00 pm

Do tags work the same as Folders did in Vcenter?

I would like to tag my Hyper-V VM's and have the backup job use those tags to backup any server with it.

if not is there a way to have VM's automatically added to backup jobs in Hyper-V

Thanks for your time

Todd, you can use Hyper-V tags to add VMs to Veeam B&R v9 jobs.

Just be aware that in order to use tags you need to deploy SCVMM server and add it to the backup console.

Is this a first backup job run? Do you also see this message if you switch to a virtual infrastructure view (not tags) in the backup job?

Greetings,

I just wanted to let others know that we have the same issue, and, when we opened a support case on 2/22/2016, the technician that worked with us found that this is a known bug in V9. I'm adding this information so others will know.

The technician indicated this should be fixed in the first SP for V9.

It would be best for you to open a support ticket to see if you might be experiencing a different issue which exhibits the same (or similar) symptom.
