Hi,

First of all this backup device and software should be compatiable with your VM. There are certain vendor supported tape drives and media which works with VM's.

Please have a look at this article http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1016407 which details about the configuration.

Hope this helps.
