Backupexec 3600 and Vmware Workstation
I've searched everywhere and can't find an answer to my questions about the BE3600. Does anybody know:
1) Will the appliance backup VMware Player, Workstation and MS Virtual PC 2007 VMs that sit on top of Windows 2003/2008 Servers?
2) Can we restore a physical server to a VM ON the appliance itself or do we need a standby server to do this? We do not have any ESXi hosts, we only use VMWare Workstation, VMWare Player and VirtualPC 2007 so that would be our only option available to restore to at this point in time.
*I realize these aren't the best virtual platforms to restore to, but these are non-critical systems running in the VMs but we still want to be able to protect and restore them.
3) If a failed physical server is restored to a VM and we rebuild or replace hardware in the failed physical server, can we then restore the data contained in the VM back to the physical machine once it's brought back up?
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
