Backup Now–VDR

You can make Data Recovery open the backup window for selected backup jobs until all applicable virtual machines are backed up. You may want to use this feature to create an initial set of backups after Data Recovery is first installed or to force all virtual machines backups to be made current. Virtual machines that have been backed up in the last 24 hours, regardless of how much they have changed since their last backup, are not backed up by Backup Now.

Procedure

1. In the vSphere Client, select Home > Solutions and Applications > VMware Data Recovery and click Connect.

2. Click the Backup tab, right-click a backup job, and click Backup Now and select either All Sources or Out of Date Sources.

Backups are run immediately and complete even if the backup window is closed.
