Step 1: Adding Basic Job Details

Get started by creating a backup job by choosing Job Create Option, choose to Create Job without using a template if you want to create a backup from scratch, or choose to Create Job using an existing template if you would like to use an already created template for the backup job creation. 

  • If you choose to Create Job using an existing template, you have to select an already created template you want to use for this backup job. Selecting a backup job template will load the Disk Exclusion, Guest VM Processing, Backup Scheduling & Job Settings from the selected template.

  • In the Backup Job Name filed, Provide a name for the backup job to identify it. The allowed characters in the backup job name are [A-Z][a-z][0-9][ - _ ]. Space and Special characters are not allowed.

  • Specify the Backup Repository type. You can choose Block Storage or Object Storage to store the backup data. 

  • After selecting the Backup Repository type, you have to select the name of the Block Storage or Object Storage repository to store the backup data. Click on the drop-down to select the backup repository name.   

  • In the Job Description field, provide a description for future reference. You can provide additional information related to this backup job in the description field.
