Yes, you can do that, but don't forget to stop all activities in the Symantec solution, just to be sure a conflict wouldn't appear.

1. Perform volume level backup of the server.
2. Restore the backup and covert it to VMDK.
3. Spin up a VM and attach the virtual disk to it.
There is another simple way to move the backup server without a downtime called Configuration backup and restore
You can simply create a VM, install VBR from scratch and restore configuration. Thanks!
