Installation of Agent for ESX/ESXi

Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Agent for ESX/ESXi is delivered as a virtual appliance. This component enables you to back up and recover virtual machines hosted on a VMware ESX Server without installing agents on the virtual machines.

Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Management Server provides an easy way to deploy Agent for ESX/ESXi to multiple ESX or ESXi servers. You might generally prefer that method to the procedure described later in this section.
Connect the console to the management server. In the Navigation tree, right click Virtual machines, then click Deploy ESX agent. Refer to the context help for further instructions.
