Hello,

I think that the only thing you should be concerned about is definitely enabling VSS option at advanced job settings, so your VMs containing high transactional applications (such as SQL 2005, 2008) are successfully backed up. Enabling VSS helps to keep DB in the consistent state, so when you do a restore, DB is restored properly.

Thank you!

I think it is better refer to VMware community forums for recommendations on using Converter: http://communities.vmware.com/community ... /converter

No, Veeam does not support physical machines.
