Virtual Machine Application Granular Recovery Technology Settings

Use the following options to enable or disable granular recovery of individual items from Microsoft Active Directory, Exchange, and SQL.

Note:

If you enable or disable granular recovery technology (GRT) for one of the following applications, the setting applies to both VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines. If you do not want to use the same settings, Symantec recommends that you set up separate backup jobs for each type of virtual machine.

See Backing up data by using the Agent for Microsoft Hyper-V.
