Hi. Have anyone seen Dataprotector 7.01 and VMware esxi 5.1 working ?
According to HP esxi is not supported on Dataprotector 7.01 !
But i have heard some rumours that it is working !
Its offcially not supported with existing DP software.You have to wait for the upcoming 7.01 Patches.
DP 7x works with ESXi5.1, no problems, information released at November 26th 2012, document ID: KM1363322, in attachment.

I'd like to know how to setup Dataprotector 7.01 Granular Recovery Extension with vCenter 5.1.
we are not using granular recovery in 5.1 yet, it is just plugin to help better restore VM's. But there is user guide and DP manuals page, document id:KM1363248, in attachment.
and here is interesting older post about it: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Data-Protector-Support-and-News/VMware-Granular-Recovery-Extension-Web-Plug-In/td-p/5296279
I'm sorry! Maybe I haven't explained with details about my problem.
I've upgraded my Cell Manager from version 6.11 to 7.00 and, after that, to 7.01. I've installed a new vCenter 5.1.0 and I cannot install the vcenter plugin. Even following the procedures above.
Is there another step that I can do?
Thanks in advance!
If you did everything according my posts, probably it is good time to raise a support case to HP DP support.
Mean time I will try to setup it in our enviroment and let you know the results.
i have a DP 7.0 cell manager runing on a physical server, can i take backup of esxi 5.1( Bare metal ), can i install DP agent on esxi 5.1???
Can anyone suggest me on this???
DP dont support agent into the ESXi.
Thanks for the info.
Can we backup ESXi 5.1 from dataprotector 7.0 or any of the DP versions????
On top of ESXi i am able to take vm backup, but need to take ESXi backup also....
The DP ( all versions ) don't support any version of ESXi. The Disk Agent don't install is this operating system.
The only way is backup the VM guests how you do.
What do you need backup os the ESXi operating system ?
Hi Freddy Corell.If you get stuck at anytime let me know!
