Do we need access to hypervisor for backing up VM's using Backup Exec 2012

Created: 29 Oct 2012 | 2 comments

Hi guys.

This is first post in the form and its been years that i worked on symantec products.

Can someone please help me to understand if we need access to hypervisor (ex: access to ESX server in case of vmware) for configuring backups of the virtual machine ?

thanks in advance

If you are going to backup your VM´s as if they are physical machine, then there is no need to have access to the host machine.
