vmware backup proxy

Post by kornelg » Mar 21, 2013 8:03 am

hello,
when i am trying to add our esx as backup proxy there is a problem.
i write the username and password and cannot login.
but when i add esx as a server to see the vms i use the same username and password and that works.
is it different the username?or should i add a new user in esx for backup offload?

Actually, ESX host can’t be added as a proxy server, the role of the proxy server can be played only by Windows-based machine.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

As mentioned above, in order to draw a difference between supported hyper-visors.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
