7.3.2 Assigning a backup plan

The service allows you to assign a backup plan to VMs and/or vApps, be they single or multiple.
In order to associate a backup plan to a VM proceed as follows:
  • select the name of the organization found in the menu at the top (in the example below we are using "Aruba"),
  • on the left select the vApp, then the VM to which you wish to associate a backup plan,
  • click "Apply backup plan",
  • a window like the one below will open asking you to select the backup plan you wish to associate from the list of backup plans,
  • Confirm by clicking "OK".
Once the process has been completed the status of the VM, displayed in the "Protection status" column, will go from not protect,

to protected.
