The ESXi server (free version currently) hosts
NetBackup can backup and restore the VMs on an ESX server, not the ESX/ESXi server itself.
Please have a look at these docs:
Statement of Support for NetBackup 7.x in a Virtual Environment: http://www.veritas.com/docs/000006177
I have modified your subject as this discussion does not seem to be related to the 'NetBackup 7.6 Blueprints - Netbackup Catalog' blog: https://vox.veritas.com/t5/Articles/NetBackup-7-6-Blueprints-Netbackup-Catalog/ta-p/808872
Know there has been a command in vmware to backup the configuration on the ESX systems. Think you will have to look on the vmware site to find the same command for ESXi if it exists.
I typed this in Google search:
