Table: Agent for VMware components

Item

Description

Backup Exec media server

This component runs the backup and restore jobs. You must enter the Agent for VMware license key on this component.

VMware vCenter Server

This component is optional. It manages the ESX servers. You do not have to install the Remote Agent for Windows Systems (Remote Agent) on this computer. If the Remote Agent is installed, it is used only to publish the vCenter Server to the Backup Exec media server.

To use Backup Exec's Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) with the Agent for VMware, install the Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems on any virtual machines that run Windows.

See How to restore individual items by using Granular Recovery Technology.
