Hi


Backup exec 12.5  can only be installed  on Windows platform as MEDIA SERVER


Hence answer to question 1 :
Q    :   "Can we define the Unix server as the Media server??"
A :   No .   
But you can define unix only as 'unix as media server  AGENT' ( it just keeps major info of catalogs -IT IS NOT MEDIA SERVER)

Yes you can protect your whole ESX server (provided agent is installed for same)
