  • Please tell us more detail about your plan.

    If you are to take backup of VM with 'NetBackup for VMware'(vStorage API integration), you don't have to share filesystem unless all disks in VM are standard vmdk.
    Whereas, if VM has RDM or independent disk and you are to backup data on it, you have to consider other way.

    Example:

    • install client software on VM, and configure file backup for RDM or independent disks
    • install client software on VM, share RDM disks with alternate read host, and configure off-host backup. You have to prepare RDM disks on shared storage which is configured with sopporeted snapshot technology. Check "snapshot client compatibility list", and "Snapshot Client Administrator's Guide"
