    Can VMs be auto discovered and added to backups based on their size?

    Commvault uses the below to auto discover VMs

    • Hosts and Clusters: Select a cluster, host, or resource pool.
    • Datastores and Datastore Clusters: Select a datastore or datastore cluster.
    • VMs and Templates: Select a virtual machine, datacenter, VM folder, or vApp.
    • Tags and Categories: Select a tag or category to identify all virtual machines under VMware entities that are marked with the tag or category.
    Unfortunately, VM's cannot be auto discovered by Size. Alternatively, If you define multiple rules, you can indicate whether virtual machines are selected when they match all of the rules, or when they match any of the rules. For rule groups that include Power State, Notes, or Custom Attribute rules, you can only select virtual machines that match all of the rules.
    Please let me know if you have any further questions.
