We are doing a consistent backup on our NetApp volumes where it performs a VMWare snapshot before the volume snapshot occurs. We have alot of VMs that we don't need to quiesce before the snapshot occurs. Is there a way to exclude specific VMs from having a VMware snapshot prior to the volume snapshot? I'd like it to just skip over creating a VMware snapshot for these specific VMs becasue we don't need them quiesced.
I thought backup jobs were volume based where it looks at all the VMs on the volume and creates a VMware snapshot/or not based on the policy. Can you setup a backup policy based on VM name and not just volume?
