To minimize system downtime and data loss when failures occur, back up all components in the vRealize Suite regularly. If your system fails, you can recover it by restoring the last known working backup and reinstalling some components.

You can back up the vRealize Suite VMs with NetBackup by creating and running a backup policy.

You must create the backup policy before you start the backup process for any VM. For more information about creating a backup policy, go to and see NetBackup for VMware Administrator's Guide.
