Does the new vmware agent work for vmware server verions 1 and/or 2?

It is not clear to me whether Symantec 12.5 can backup vmware server (free) virtual machines.  Part of the requirement is to get vmware consolidated backup (vcb) which seems to only be avialable with Vmware esx or infrastructure.  Can anyone confirm?

You are correct that it requires the infrastructure platform.  ESX Server at a minimum and preferably Virtual Center.  Will not work for VMWare Server.

Thanks.

 

Couple more questions.  Does it require a SAN between the backup server and the esx server.  So far I have installed vmware converter and VCB on the backup server, I can see the esxi server from backupexec but cannot connect to it, it prompts for login credentials but I am not sure which credentials to use.  I tried the system account and the admin account for the esxi server.

 

I tried configuring the config.js files for vcb also but am not sure if I did that right.

 

I haven't found much documentation on getting this setup in 12.5.
