Can Netbackup interface with mainframe zVM like it does with VMware

Level 4

We are on NetBackup soon to be upgrading to 10.1

We have a number of zLinux guests that we are backing up as standard clients with the client agent installed on them,

The zLinux guests are on an IBM mainframe with z/VM 7.3

Can that z/VM server be added in Netbackup as a Virtual Machine server so I can back up the zLinux guests as VMs?

My guess is probably no, as there isn't a policy type for it. The only real documentation available for it that i could see is at , which is also referenced in the NetBackup virtual environment support documentation. Unless there is a big customer demand to create it, then it may not get done.
