server-centric model with VMware?
after upgrading to BackupExec 2012 a few weeks ago we are struggling to get our backup together again.
On point i'm curious about now is how to handle the new "server-centric model" in a VMware-environment.
From Symantec documentation it says:
"Backup Exec 2012 supports a server-centric model with one backup job per server.
No longer will one server's failed backup cause the entire job to fail, as with previous versions."
Now 99% of our servers are virtual machines. How would / should i organize our virtual machines in BackupExec 2012 backup jobs?
If i choose the virtual machine in the backup view ("Windows-Computer (virtual computer)") BackupExec bypasses our VirtualCenter/ESX and the backup-job uses a direct connection to the installed backup-agent.
If i choose the VirtualCenter (and limit the selection inside to the desired virtual machines) the whole backup-job fails upon a single virtual machine problem. -> no server-centric model her
So anyone has advice how to handle the virtual environment efficiently in BackupExec 2012?
Thanks in advance.
