Integration Module Integration for Symantec Backup Exec for Windows Servers 12.5

Is there an integration module needed for using VCB vmware consolidated backup in Backupexec 12.5?

Hi dwynne,

 

not at all. The VCB software is needed to backup a virtual machine.

VMware Converter is also needed if you want to use the new VMware Agent of BackupExec12.5.

There is no need for the VMware "Virtual Center".

Can you point to any good documentation on this.  I can see my esx3.5i server in Backupexec but cannot connect to it, I get access denied when trying to access.  I know I have the correct username and password for the esx server as I login in with the infrastructure client no problem.  I called support and they said it was a firewall running on the esx server which is not true.  This is the latest esx version that has no service console.

 

I already have converter and vcb on the backup server.

 

Any guidance appreciated.

I am sorry dwynne, I also don't have good documentation.
I am not from symantec and I think backup exec 12.5 is to new that any documents exist.
I don't know if you even can use backup exec with the ESXi and the VMware agent.
ESXi is without VCB license so I really don't know if you can succed with it...

 

... I did a little research. VCB is officially not supported by ESXi ...
