I was looking for details on the new Veeam 7 feature, "Transparent Backup of vCenter Server VM," that allows one to backup the vcenter server via the vcenter server. (Instead of going through a specific ESXi server).

Dave, yes, there's no more need in direct host connection during vCenter server backup as its databases are basically excluded from VSS processing. You can find some details here (some specifics regarding the configuration with remote database).

Given a vSphere infrastructure based on ESXi 5.5 nodes where the vCenter is a Windows Server 2008 R2 VM and another Windows server 2008 R2 is the Veeam B&R 9.5 server, is there any issue using Veeam B&R to backup the vCenter VM? Up to now we used a third party backup program to backup the vCenter to a NAS, but I don't see the need to go on using such program. Am I missing any relevant issue? Regards marius
