Yes, this is supported, you install the Agents in the Virtual Machine, but also Symantec interfaces with vSphere vcenter if you have it.

I have a vcenter.
So I think I don't have to install the vmware agents on the vm's.
I have three hosts.
So I bought 3 vmware agents.

Hi,

Yes, you need 3 VMware Agents and you don't have to install Remote Agents into Virtual Machines unless you want to have granular recovery of applications inside this VMs (for example, SQL, AD, Exchange, etc.). If you would like to have GRT, then you need those agents inside VMs.

Best regards,
Vladimir

The backup exec vmware agent licensed by host and provides unlimited number of remote agents (but does not include SQL, Exchange, etc..)

Your ESXi host will need to be licensed because the backp exec agent uses the vStorage API.

ok thanks for the information. it is great to use the feature of esxi and be2010.
We are using SQL and AD and EXCHANGE. We also bought the agents for it.
But can you explain what you mean by installing the agents to the vm's?
I just know to install the licenses for the agents and then I install the BE agent to the vm. right ?

Hi,

To use Granular Recovery Technology you have to install remote agents for AD, SQL and Exchange as you do on "regular" Windows machines. You go to the Tools | Remote Agent Installation Wizard and install remote agents to those servers (Virtual Machines).

You will backup your servers using Vmware agent, but when you need to restore individual item, like some object in AD, or one email into Exchange your BE2010 will use those remote agents to restore it.

Best regards,
Vladimir
