Ensure first ESX version 5.1 is not suported with BE , If you have install Vmware license key and have got virtual machines to do backup then you can do backup by adding name of ESX or Vcenter from add vmware server and enter name of ESX or Vcenter ,if you wish to do Application backup like exchange ,SQL on virtual machine then you can install remote agent on virtual machine
