VMware Backups with NetBackup 7.5 Beta

Level 5
Partner Accredited Certified

Hey Guys,


I recently installed NetBackup 7.5Beta and was testing VMware single pass backups for Exchange. Unfortunatelly this Beta comes with admin guides for 7.1. Does anyone succeeded to take a single pass vmbackup of the exchange server? If so - what are the requirements and how to restore the data?

Hi Sebastian,

  Thank you for participating in beta program. I confirmed with engineering that Exchange and SharePoint single pass backup features are not in first beta drop (beta 1). This will be available in a future drop.

  We apologize for the inconvenience this might have caused.

No worries guys. Thanks for checking this for me. At least I tried as many possible scenarios as I could to find out if it is working.
