Identifying available resources

Resources are the databases and similar components that are maintained by the plug-ins you have installed. You can add those resources to resource groups to perform data protection jobs, but first you must identify available resources. Identifying resources also verifies that the installation of plug-in packages is completed successfully.

About this task

SnapCenter Custom Plug-ins does not allow you to refresh resources.


  1. In the left navigation pane, click Resources, and then select the appropriate plug-in from the list.
  2. From the drop-down list, select the application (File Systems, Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Database, or SAP HANA) that you want to manage.
  3. To filter the resources, select the host from the Host drop-down menu.
    If you have installed SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for Windows, you can also filter the resources based on the resource types such as database, instance, and availability group.
  4. Click Refresh Resources.
    The new resources added to the SnapCenter inventory are displayed.
