You best bet is probably to contact the backup vendor, in this case it's HP to figure out why you're running into this issue. If it's in fact a VMware issue, you'll get better support by opening up an SR with VMware. Though I think your first contact should be HP, as it's their tool that's doing the backup.

Got the same error - with ESX4.0 Update 2 /we are using DP6.0 with the integration packet.
I found a vmware KB article referencing the problem but the perl rpm is only for ESX3.5.x - Did you find a solution ?
comparing ESX3.5 & ESX4.0 - I found the following perl module missing: VmPerl.pm
for example on:
ESX3.5, the Dataprotector createsnapshot.pl uses VMware::VmPerl;
on ESX4.0 udpate 2 - 5.8.0 does not exist.
does anyone know how to install the missing perl module ?
Did anyone found a solution on this matter?
I am trying to integrate theese days Hp DP6.0 with ESX 4.1 and I get similar error:
Can't locate VMware/VmPerl.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .) at /opt/omni/bin/DPvmware_createsnapshot.pl line 21.

2011-05-11-15:56:21 DPvmware_createsnapshot.pl Script failed. Not proceeding with the DP session.
I must recognize that perl is not my best friend but it seems that VmPerl.pm is missing from our installation.
Can anyone help?
Unfortunately there is no fix for this - DP6.0 is not supported with vmware vSphere 4. We had to upgrade to DP6.11 & use the vmware VEPA integration module.
