backup exec 2012 sp1a pbm with vsphere 5 backup Vmtools credentials

Created: 21 Nov 2012 | 1 comment

Hello

I have the following behavior

When i try to backup vmdk and test vmdk backup credentials. I use only esx no vcenter. no use for GRT

in docs, I see that if you do not need GRT, you dont have to install the BE agent

When I dont install vmtools the credentail status on my vms are success. When I install vmtools

ni success ..... so its a problem as I need vmtools on my VM
 

I never success in VMDK vm, not happy at all

Do you have some help tks

Is your ESX(i) host licensed with a valid Vmware vSphere license ?

Only licensed versions of ESX contain the VADP function which is required for the Backup Exec Vmware Agent.

What is the exact error message when the backup fails ?
