BackupExec 2012 Agent for VMware over NFS?
Good morning. We recently acquired a new NetApp SAN and are looking to move from iSCSI to NFS for our vSphere storage. I understand from looking at the BackupExec 2012 SCL it is possible to use the Agent for VMware to back up VMs from NFS SAN storage, but after reading through the BE Admin Guide, browsing Symantec's website, searching Google, and searching this forum I've yet to come up with a single bit of information on the proper methods to mount the NFS datastores on my BE 2012 media server.
Note that I already have iSCSI datastores mounted on my BE media server from my older NetApp SAN and all of the appropriate DISKPART commands have already been done on the media server host.
I have NetApp's SnapManager for Virtual Infrastructure, and all of the other SnapManager licsenses on my NetApp storage, but it would be nice to still be able to produce some monthly tape backups of our VMware environment using BackupExec.
Anyone have any more specific, detailed, information on how to back up vSphere VMs using BackupExec 2012 on NFS datastores? I would prefer to use a SAN transport method for this so that traffic is not going over either my production network or the service console.
