Netbackup for VMware, how to configure datastores where the backup host is a VM
I've been working through the Netbackup Admin Guide for VMware and some on-line reading, but I'm still not clear on one point. Where it says :
You can think of hot-add transport as a special case of SAN transport where the backup host is also a virtual machine. The backup host VM accesses the VMDK objects of other VMs directly from the data store (similar to SAN transport). It can protect all VMs on datastores to which it has access."
Is there something specific that needs to be done on the vmware configuration so that the VM, that is my backup hostm can access all the datastores for that ESX host ?
