Protecting VMware resources — VM, datastore, or storage folder

To protect a VM, datastore, or a storage folder, assign a Copy Policy. On assigning a Copy Policy, RMC creates and manages the life cycle of the VM copies or datastore copies according to the defined copy rules.

  1. Right-click the VMware resource (VM, datastore, or storage folder) and then click All HPE Recovery Manager Central Actions > Add Protection.
  2. Select the protection type:
    • To run the protection once, click Protect Once.

    • To create a schedule, click Add Protection.

  3. Select a Copy Policy.

    If the Copy Policy has AUTO option selected in any of the fields, then you cannot add protection for a storage folder.
