Select clients to backup / Select ESXi/vCenter VMs for backup: In the 'Schedule Backup' section, select all or the specific physical machines / ESXi hosts / vCenter servers you want to backup to the cloud.

Scheduled backup time: Set the time at which the backup should start. Schedule backup as 'Daily' or select the days for backup.
