Do NetBackup have limited to back VM ?

May I know NetBackup have limitation to back up VM ? like what sizing of VMDK can backup ? coz I got this problem, when the vmdk over 200 gb it got backup failure !!!

  • Did you mention that it was an exchange server previosuly?

    Thats does make a difference as it will be trying to quiesce the exchange database as part of the backup which could cause the snapshot to fail

    If you are not backing up exchange databases as part of the backup (in which case you would need a NBU client and Symantec VSS provider installing) then you probably need to disable application quiesce to get it to work - see option B in this tech note:
