Click on Add to bring up the object browser where you can select your VMs from your VMware vSphere infrastructure. Expand the Hosts and Clusters entry to show your VMware vCenter instance.

  4. You should now be able to see your hosts on top of the tree view as well as all the registered VMs just below them.

  5. Pick the VMs you want to back up using this backup job; use Shift or Alt to select multiple VMs, just as you would in any Microsoft Windows application...
