We use VC 2.5 and ESX 3.5. We have recently purchased SYmantec Backupexec V12, and we have purchased it for our vmware environment. We were told by symantec that we need to install with VCB and then we are able to backup any virtual machines on the esx servers and also do granular file level backups.
I have not used VCB yet but have licenses for it.
Has anyone used this setup where by you use VCB with backupexec 12. Are you able to give me instructions on how you install VCB with backupexec 12 or any good literature or links.
There should be some documentation under the VCB product but also check out viops.vmware.com for proven practices/configurations such as the following:
VMware vExpert 2009
If you find this information useful, please award points for "correct" or "helpful".
Cannot find any specific instructions on setting up backupexec V 12 with VCB. Has anyone done this, and whats the list of steps you took. For example do you install the backup exe for vmware agent software first or the VCB software. We want to install on a physical server which fibre access to our fibre SAN, same access that the ESX servers have.
Cannot anyone please advise
Installa VCB AND the integration tools for BE.
Then there is a .bat script for configure the path, and open the VCB configuration file.
There is also an HTML page with info to use the pre-backup and post-backup scripts.
