System Center Data Protection Manager (SCDPM) is well recognized in the industry for protection of Microsoft workloads and environments. It protects key Microsoft workloads such as SQL, SharePoint and Exchange as well as virtual machines running on Hyper-V.  Today, we are announcing support for protection of VMware virtual machines . This will allow enterprise customers to have a single backup solution across their heterogeneous IT environment.

Here are the four simple steps to configure VMware server and DPM to protect VMware VMs.

1. Enable a secure SSL communication between DPM and VMware server







2.Add a new user with certain minimum privileges






The set of privileges described in the above video are applicable for a vCenter 5.5 user account. If you are creating a vCenter 6.0 user account, the following table captures the privileges that you need to assign to the user account that you create:

Privileges for vCenter 6.5 and above user account
