Notes on troubleshooting NetBackup for VMware

Note the following:

  • Make sure that the VMware Tools are installed on each virtual machine. Otherwise, communication problems and other issues can result. For example:

    • When you select virtual machines on the policy Clients tab, NetBackup cannot obtain the host name, IP address, or DNS name of the virtual machine. Policy validation may fail.

    • The virtual machine cannot be quiesced in preparation for the snapshot.

  • You cannot restore individual VMware files onto the virtual machine itself, except under certain conditions.
