i have a dp 6.11 which i hope to integrate with vmware esx3.5 and vcenter 2.5. i serach to take the VCB (vmware consolidated backup) script from the hp site but i found only the script for dp5.5 and 6.0.
1- is there any VCB script for dp6.11 specifically?
2- the VCB script for 5.5and 6.0 can be work normally with dp6.11??

And it uses the same license number you can buy to do online backups, e.g. for MSSQL or Exchange - but it is not "free".

The Data Protector VMware integration has more features. For example, it can use agents in the ESX service console and do backups with a VCB proxy. Or use data protector agents on the VCB proxy. One useful feature is that the integration can "ask the vCenter server" on which ESX server a VM is running (I'm sure you know this can change when you are using VMotion, DRS or HA) and then talk to this server for backups.
This link covers the standard 6.11 documentation, plus it has a number of useful whitepapers (including VMware integration) at the bottom:

is there any features on DP 6.11 that we help to backup this VM from EVA without VCB product from Vmware, and how to install the VCB without the scripts (not available on hp site)?
