This document explains how to set your Netbackup environment to backup ESX host

Why vmbk do it better? .
normally with NetBackup  product you need to know which ESX server own VM guest, so you can configure backup job to catch disk files owned by guest , well what happen if you move a VM to another host (for example with VMotion) or you add a new one ? You miss your backup .

Well with vmbk, this problem don't exist because the backup file list is generate "just in time", so you don't need to worry about where is your guest.




VMBK.PL command example -B policy=VMWare  -l /var/log/vmbk
