Media server as VM

Hi friends,

i have a question, and  need your help please.

Is it possible to use a virtual machine VMWARE as Media Server?
Netbackup Master is a Windows 2008 R2 VM under version 7.7.2.
We have a Data Domain 890 and we also have a ROBOT NEO OVERLAND 8000E.
Note that we already have a Physical Media Server connected to this infrastructure and functional, but need to know if we can add a Media Server VM, and could handle backups on Tapes (Robotics) and Data Domain.

thanks in advance.

Re: Media server as VM

Virtual Media server on VMware is only supported with disk.
No tape or robotics (Media Manager) .

Please see this doc: 
Statement of Support for NetBackup 7.x and 8.x in a Virtual Environment:    http://www.veritas.com/docs/000006177
