Host Pool Backup

Host Pool Backup

Nerdio Manager allows you to enable automatic Azure backup of pooled and personal host pools.

To configure host pool backups:

  1. Locate the host pool you wish to work with.
  2. From the action menu, select PropertiesBackup.

  3. Enter the following information:

    • Enable backup: Toggle this option on.

    • Disable backups on VMs protected by NME: Select this option to .stop all VM backups which were created by Nerdio Manager. If not selected, existing protected items are not affected.

    • Vault: Create a new vault, or select an existing vault, to contain the backups for this host pool.

      Note: The vault must be in the same region as the VMs. Backup for VMs that are not in the same region as the vault are skipped.

    • Policy: Create a new backup policy, or select an existing backup policy, for this host pool.
