Hello there,

    Ideally you should be able to. But there are chances that the backups will fail with the following error because the Media server VM will also be included in the ESX server:

Also it is highly recommended that BE should be installed on physical server.

EDIT:

Refer to this technote " http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH130609"
