Data Protector 9 with VMWare Exsi 5.5

Hi, 

 

I get the PDF HP Data Protector Software Version: 9.00 Integration Guide, but I'm not abled to use Virtual Environment features. Can someone help me or indicate me a real documentation for Data Protector 9 with VMWare integration ? I read some documentation for DP6.20 with old version of Exsi and it cannot applicate same for DP9 + Exsi 5.5.

 

Thanks for your help

Suggest to check this guide:

Search for Document ID KM01024689 on SoftwareSupport Page to get it.

 

For the Supported configurations check:

Hi svollrat,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

The Virtualization Guide is a part of the Integratio Guide Part5 Chapiter 17. So I already try the instructions with client importation way, the client host can be list, but it doesn't work. Not possible to add backup definition.

 

And about the compatibility, I think it is ok. 

 

We just want to compare the performance between the common Disk agent backup and Virtualisation environment backup. But I see that the virtualisation environment backup is a little bit complex to integrat.

Re: Data Protector 9 with VMWare Exsi 5.5

I assume you only imported the vCenter Server as vmwarehost to the Cell with Credentials that have sufficient privilleges in vSpere.

You also need a BackupHost that manages the VMware-Backup, that Server needs the Virtual Environment Agent installed and ideally also the Media Agent. This BackupHost also schould be zoned to see all ESX Datastores (assuming SAN-Environment here).

During Backup-Config you then simply select the vCenter as Client and your MediaServer/BackupHost as Backup-Host.

After that the BackupHost queries the vCenter (with the Credentials given during vCenter import) and lists the available Datacenters afterwards.

Re: Data Protector 9 with VMWare Exsi 5.5

needs some preparation, that is true

for me it makes it up with very good Backup-Performance and almost no impact on the VMs

currently read around 700GB/h over two MediaServers, more would be possible.

With the DiskAgent in the VMs we easily filled up the CPU, RAM and NICs on the ESX; nothing left for customer during Backup.

With VEAgent Backup the only things under stress are the BackupHost/MediaServer and the SAN-Disks.

Ok, I will try it.

 

Thanks for the performance indication, very important for us.
