Exclude disks for VM-level backups - VMWare
Request the ability to exclude entire disks from a VM level backup. An example would be a VM level backup of a SQL server but we want to exclude the database dump volume since that contains redundant data.
Another example is a file server that has multiple large historical drives (static data) and one active drive receiving new data. The fileserver could be protected at the VM level to target the active data but ignore the drives with static data.
This entry is specific to VMWare VM protection.
You can exclude specific disk from backup of VMware VM. Please refer to following article to know the step required for configuration.
