Is it possible we can install VEAgent (Virtual Environment Integration Agent) on VMWare ESXI 6.7 ? since we need to configure esxi host as the backup host for VM backup..
Thanks & Regards
As mentioned the integration can be installed on a Windows or Linux VM or (external) physical host to the ESXi. ESXi does not support installation of data protection agents.
However, we would like know that can we install VEAgent on ESXI standalone server (physical machine) ?
There is something I want to add here. Please note that Data Protector, similar to all other backup ISVs, is using VMware VDDK to protect VMs. This is a licensed feature. So if the ESXi standalone server is ESXi free the VEPA (VEAgent integration) is not working. You need to have at least an ESXi Standard license on the ESXI host to use the integration. Is this the case?
Thanks for the prompt reply.
We are using VMware ESXi 6.7.0 Update 2 (Licensed) and i was looking for DA/ VEAgent support matrix but could'nt find any info on that.
However, its clear from response that its not supported.
You can the latest support matrix for Data Protector A.10.50 (2019.08) here.
