Overview

The All vCenters/ESXi Hosts page lets you configure your VMware setup and monitor the registered vCenter and ESXi servers and the virtual machines managed by or hosted on them.  You can switch between the card view and the list view.

Field Description
Backup Enabled VMs

X/Y: The number of backup-enabled VMs (X) out of the total number of virtual machines (Y) discovered on the vCenter or ESXi host.

Bar chart:

  • The legends on the bar chart depict a count of the total number of VMs, Backup-enabled VMs, Backup-disabled VMs, and Unconfigured VMs.
  • The bar chart is clickable. 
    • Clicking the number next to Backup Enabled VMs takes you to the Configured VMs page. The page is filtered to display only the backup-enabled VMs. 
    • Clicking the number next to Backup Disabled VMs takes you to the Configured VMs page. The page is filtered to display only the backup disabled VMs. 
    • Clicking the number next to Unconfigured VMs takes you to the Configured VMs page. The page is filtered to show the unconfigured VMs.
Last Backup Status The donut chart graphically represents a breakup of all backup jobs for that vCenter or ESXi host that ended in specific statuses. Clicking the count next to any backup status takes you to the Configured VMs page filtered by that status.  
Backup Proxies The total number of backup proxies deployed for that vCenter server or ESXi host. Clicking the number of backup proxies takes you to the Backup Proxies page for that vCenter or ESXi host.
Backup Proxy Pools The number of Backup proxy pools configured for that vCenter server or ESXi host. The pool may contain one or more backup proxies. Clicking the number of Backup proxy pools takes you to the Backup Proxy Pools tab on the Backup Proxies page for that vCenter or ESXi host.

List view

The list view of the All vCenters/ESXi Hosts page shows you a list of all registered vCenter servers or ESXi hosts.

#Total VMs The total number of virtual machines discovered on the vCenter server or ESXi host. Clicking the total virtual machine count takes you to the All Virtual Machines page for that vCenter or ESXi host.
#Backup Enabled VMs The total number of backup enabled virtual machines on the vCenter server or ESXi host configured for backups. Clicking the backup-enabled VMs count takes you to the Configured VMs page. The page is filtered to display only the backup-enabled VMs.
#App-Aware VM Protection The total number of virtual machines on the vCenter server or ESXi host configured for application-aware backups. Clicking the app-aware VM count takes you to a filtered Configured VMs page. The page is filtered to show a list of VMs configured for app-aware backups.
#Last Backup Status of VMs The donut chart graphically represents a breakup of all backup jobs for that vCenter or ESXi host that ended in specific statuses. Clicking the count next to any backup status takes you to the Configured VMs age filtered by that status.  
#Backup Proxy Pools The number of Backup proxy pools configured for that vCenter server or ESXi host. The pool may contain one or more backup proxies. Clicking the number of Backup proxy pools takes you to the Backup Proxy Pools tab on the Backup Proxies page for that vCenter or ESXi host.
#Backup Proxies The total number of backup proxies deployed for that vCenter server or ESXi host.Clicking the number of backup proxies takes you to the Backup Proxies page for that vCenter or ESXi host.

Actions you can perform from the card view or list view

Action Description
Register New VMware Setup Deploy a Backup proxy on your standalone ESXi host or a vCenter and register the Backup proxy.
Update Credentials Update the username and password for the selected vCenter server or ESXi host.
Change IP/FQDN Migrate the selected vCenter server or ESXi host to a new server with updated IP/FQDN and credentials. For more information, see Migrate vCenter or ESXi.
Delete

Delete the selected vCenter server or ESXi host.

Note: All proxies mapped to the vCenter server or ESXi host must be deleted and all virtual machines on that vCenter server or ESXi host must be unconfigured.
