If the Use NSX Vendor Templates / NSX Profile Configurations option is selected in the drop-down list at the top of the window and the application is deployed in the infrastructure managed by VMware NSX-T Manager, the following information is displayed in the Protected infrastructure section:

  • Name of the default protection profile. This protection profile is automatically assigned to NSX Vendor Templates for which the mapping to protection profile has not been set yet or has been canceled as a result of deleting that protection profile. As a result, the default protection profile settings are used to protect virtual machines managed by the NSX Policy that uses the NSX Service Profile based on this NSX Vendor Template.

    Main protection profile is set as the default protection profile. If you canceled the use of default protection profile, the Do not use protection profile value is displayed.

  • The table of correspondence between the protection profiles and NSX Vendor Templates configured in the protected infrastructure.

The correspondence table displays the following information:

  • The NSX Vendor Template / NSX Profile Configuration column displays the name of the NSX Vendor Template. If several NSX Vendor Templates with the same identifier (vendor_template_id) are created in the virtual infrastructure, their names are separated by comma. Kaspersky Security processes NSX Vendor Templates with the same ID as one NSX Vendor Template.
  • If a mapping is set between the protection profile and the NSX Vendor Template displayed in the NSX Vendor Template / NSX Profile Configuration column, the Protection profile column displays the name of the protection profile. Kaspersky Security uses the settings of the specified protection profile to protect virtual machines managed by the NSX Policy that uses the NSX Service Profile based on this NSX Vendor Template.
  • If mapping between the protection profile and the NSX Vendor Template displayed in the NSX Vendor Template / NSX Profile Configuration column is canceled, the Protection profile column displays the (Not assigned) value. If no security profile is mapped to an NSX Vendor Template, the virtual machines that are managed by the NSX policy which uses the NSX Service Profile based on this NSX Vendor Template are excluded from protection.
