Re: Asterisk (*) next to the virtual machine name

The * next to the VM means that a scheduled backup or replication task for this VM exists.
If no * is present, no backup or replication scheduled task is present in the scheduler.

The * is related only on the presence of a scheduled task.
You could have valid backups or replications (done manually or from a deleted scheduled task) for a VM without a *.

Hint:
In case you create a scheduled task, you will not see a * right away.
This can take a few minutes, In case you need an immediate result, restart the "Trilead VM Explorer Service" on the system hosting VM Explorer.

Let me know in case something is still unclear.
