How Backup Exec automatically protects new virtual machines during a backup job

Backup Exec's dynamic inclusion feature protects new virtual machines and folders that are found when a backup job runs. If new virtual machines are added between the time when the backup job is created and when the backup job runs, Backup Exec automatically backs up the new virtual machines. Because the backup job may include new virtual machines, the job may require more storage space and more time to run than you anticipated. The job history shows the number of virtual machines that were backed up.

In the backup selection list, dynamic inclusion is enabled for the following Hyper-V nodes:

  • Microsoft Hyper-V

  • Virtual Machines under Microsoft Hyper-V

  • The Hyper-V host node

    If you select the host node, then dynamic inclusion is enabled automatically for the Microsoft Hyper-V node.

  • Microsoft Hyper-V HA Virtual Machines

  • The cluster name node

    If you select the cluster name node, then dynamic inclusion is enabled automatically for the Microsoft Hyper-V HA Virtual Machines node.
