Hi, I am trying to setup Data Protection Manager 2012 R2 agent on VMware hosts so I can backup the VM's residing on the VMware hosts.  According to my research, the VMware hosts need to be on the domain or trust created with the domain my DPM server resides?  Is this true?

Also, I am also hearing that I can just install DPM agent on my vCenter server that does already reside on the same domain as my DPM server, but not sure how that would work since the vCenter server is actually a VM residing on the VMware host.  Is this true?

Any assistance, suggestions, greatly appreciated.
