Re: Plug-in for Vmware Vcenter Appliance

You have to login to the vSphere client with the same connection  details as used to add the vCenter into Backup Exec in the first place.

If you used FQDN for vCenter in Backup Exec you must use FQDN in vSphere client

If you used just hostname in Backup Exec you must use just Hostname in vSphere Client

If you used IP address in Backup Exec you must use IP address in vSphere client.

 

Of course use the same credentials as well Smiley Wink

The appliance isn't listed, but vSphere 5.5 is.

However...BE 15 supports the appliance. Check the SCL below:
