No, not supported yet. Support of vSphere 5.1 is planned with later version.
Please check "Support for NetBackup 7.x in virtual environments" page 13.

A point of clarity......

Is this jst vSphere 5.1 support or does it include vCenter 5.1 ?  i.e. Do we support a config with vCenter 5.1 managing vSphere 5.0 servers with NBU 7504

It is clearly documented in "Support for NetBackup 7.x in virtual environments" page 13. vCenter 5.1 is not supported so far.

A lot of discussion also about a reason Symantec not supporting vsphere 5.1 at the moment here...

in depth and technical..

 

Tip: Get overview/document your NBU environment. Run 'nbsu' and review the output.
