At this time, NetBackup clients and agents are supported within the individual VMs.  You may install the NBU client on the individual VM as if it were a physical system, as long as the operating system is currently supported.  Please consult the current NetBackup Operating System Compatibility Guide ( for more information

NetBackup supports backup and recovery of virtual machines in a Citrix XenServer virtualized environment, by means of a Snapshot Client off-host backup method.

For a description of this backup approach, see the following document:
