Following were the infra details:-
1. VMware ESXi (2 no.)
3. VMotion is enabled.
4. four no. of VM for SAP and database is DB2 which is running on RHEL6.5
5. one VM for Zimbra.
We have made the solution using BE 2012 for taking backup of all the VMs along with the GRT.
Now, please , help with the following queries:-
a. For VM backup 2 no. of VMware host licesne will work?
b. A windows agent license for VCenter.
c. For GRT which agent is required for DB2 database's file restoration?
d. For the VM where Zimbra is situated, which agent is required for GRT restoration.
Any other requirement for technical point of view.
Application GRT using VMware agent is offered only for MS Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint & Active Directory.
Additionally, one requires an agent for Vmware & hyper-v license is required per ESX host and Agent for Applications & DB licenses are required if GRT is taken for the above listed applications.
If using VMware agent to backup, then GRT capability is available only for Windows systems. However, if you use the RALUS agent to backup the RHEL machine, you can restore individual files/folders.
Yes right ...
BE 2012 support only upto RHEL 6.2...
so my porpose is not met...
As BE 2012 does not support GRT for Linux system and also if I use the RALUS to backup the RHEL system (as if a physical system) will not take a backup either (due to compability issue).
Any alternative way out....
I have checked the beta release for BE 2014 and it states in the "What's new in this release?" section that RHEL 6.4 is supported but no statement for RHEL 6.5.
Check this below link (with BE 2014 beta release section , which required to registry for this BE 2014 beta program).
Indeed. But it doesn't matter whether it is supported. What matters is whether it works. RHEL 6.5 is just RHEL 6.2 with all current updates. If RALUS works on 6.2 it will work on 6.5.
I have an idea lets go for a R&D with which we are discussing ..
I will create a LAB setup with RHEL 6.5 on VMware 5.0 and will try using BE 2012 with RALUS installed (or trying to)
And let see..the result..
