VMware 7.0.2 with BE 21.2R2

Dear all,

We are setting up a test environment with the following elements:
-VMware Cluster with two ESXi nodes and vCenter 7.0.2
-Fujitsu Eternus DX200S5 storage cabinet
-Backup Exec 21.2R2

In the virtual layer we have several Windows Server 2019 VMs with Fault Tolerance active, could you confirm what is the current integration of these FT machines in Backup Exec backups and restores for specified versions of the involved products?

At least, we have checked that backups can be completed directly from vCenter, without the need of additional agents.

How we should perform a complete restore of a FT VM?

Thank you very much for your help.

BR,
Samu

On recovery:
  1. Deploy the template that you created in step 1 of the previous section to a virtual machine. For more information, see Working with Templates and Clones section in the vSphere Basic Administration Guide.
  2. Use your in-guest backup application to recover the data to this new virtual machine. For more information, consult your vendor documentation.
  3. Turn on FT for the virtual machine. For more information, see Turning on Fault Tolerance for Virtual Machines section in the vSphere Availability Guide.
  4. Turn on your in-guest backup application for the FT virtual machine. For more information, consult your vendor documentation.
