Running Backup Exec 12.5 on separate server, running an array on a separate server for D2D storage, Running These sh###y EMC server clusters with ESX version?? running Virtual Center 2.5 Build 147633.
Their guide speaks to backup exec, but is not all inclusive. I even shelled out thousands for the class and the backup was a mere gloss over. Even when I asked specific questions pertaining to it, I was brushed off being told that he doesn't know. The only thing I did walk away with was the perception that in addition to our VMWare server, and our vmware server that 2 other servers were needed: a proxy server and a VCB server.
Can someone help me sort this crap out please. We currently have 6 server running in VMWare and no backups of the VMWare server, I am running agents on those servers and running backups on the servers themselves, but to me this is a poor solution. I would much rather have backups of the virtual devices themselves and run a secondary backup only on data. Due to the difficulty I've had with just this one issue (as well as the poor service for the astronomical costs associated with the software and the service plan), I can definitely say that I am VERY sorry that I chose VMWare as a solution over Hypervisor. But now I'm stuck and have to make this work, so can anyone help me?
