i am going to virtualise my netware server onto a 2 node esx environment, this environment has a third physical server running BackupExec 12.5 and has the virtual infrastructure agent to do VCB based backups.

i can happily backup and restore my windows servers, however, what are my options when i virtualise the netware server ?

will i be able to backup and restore at a file level on the netware server ?

im guessing not ?

will i only be able to backup the vmdk as a whole ?

what other options do i have ?

backing up over the network isnt really an option as there is around 3TB of data...
