backup VMs with two softwares

Currently I backup my VMs with Vmware Data Recovery software. We are in process of implementing Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Enviornment and Veeam Backup.
My question is can i backup one VM twice with different software, once with VDR and second with TSM or Veeam. I know that there is CBT(change block tracking) that are used by VDR to backup only changes and what will happen if I backup one VM with both software?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would certainly not recommend it.

especially if the timeslots of backup are the same.

It depends heavily on the methods used for change tracking. There's a very high chance that using two backup solutions will result in incomplete backups for either solution, so I wouldn't recommend it either.
The CBT put by VDR will be seen only by it. The other backup software won't be allowed to put its own, so it will make always a full backup. Unless there's a special plugin in Tivoli to recognize the VDR CBT.

In general is not a good idea at all to use two backup softwares of the same kind.
