I am moving to Veeam B&R from Commvault Simpana, and one thing that I already miss is Commvault's more-powerful filtering methods. For example, one Commvault job (for Windows VMs) was defined by "Guest OS contains Windows AND VM name does not contain 'string' "
I know that this can all be replicated in folders, but folders are not automatic, and our environment (especially Linux systems) is growing by leaps and bounds, so automation is key to our survival. I am often completely unaware of newly-built VMs for days if not weeks, but they all need to be backed up.
The only good way I see of doing this is creating two folders, Windows and Nonprod. The Windows job would select only VMs in that folder, and the Linux job would select only VMs in neither folder (assuming I don't want to back up test machines).
Anyone else have any better way of carving things up?
