This issue has been solved. See solution.


One of my backup success but with exception, other similar jobs without problem.

Backup- VMVCB::\\VCENTER\VCGuestVm\Datacenter\vm\XX.XX.XX.XX

V-79-57344-38727 - Backup Exec failed to collect the necessary metadata for virtual machine '\Datacenter\vm\XX.XX.XX.XX' to restore individual application items. You cannot perform GRT-enabled restores of application data from this backup.
OS : Server 2008
Sharepoint service 3.0
MS Sql server 2008
Backup exec agent installed
vmware tool vss writer not installed
Backup exec 2012
Enabled SQL and Sharepoint GRT under VM tab.
Any idea? Thanks!!

vmware tool vss writer not installed

If I am not mistaken this is necessary.  You should install VMware Tools on the VM, followed by the BE remote agent.
