This post guides us through How to create a VMware Application Protection policy to back up the SharePoint Application in a Virtual Machine.
On the NetBackup Master Server
NetBackup Management > Right Click on Policies > Select New. Provide a name to the policy.
This would open up an “Add New Policy Window” dialog.
Choose Policy Type as VMware.
Select a Storage unit
NOTE – Enable Granular Recovery is disabled, as this type of policy is by default granular.
Add a new schedule as per your requirement.
IMPORTANT- Clients Tab
For VMware application aware backups, the name of the client cannot be entered manually or chosen from list of clients. It must be chosen using a VMware Intelligent Policy (VIP) query.
