backup VMs using Symantec Backup Exec 12.0

hi

 


how can I backup VMs from ESX 3.5 using Symantec Backup Exec for Windows Server 12.0


we have agent license for linux servers and the linux agent software is already installed on the ESX.


in Symantec Backup Exec I can see all ROOT files and I can backup /etc without problems.


is it possible to backup VMs now ?


which VM files (vmdk, vmx ?) should I backup ?

Hi,

 

in your case I would decide to use the new version 12.5 with the new VMware Agent.

With this agent you can backup hole virtual machines very easy.
