Hi:

A customer has a VMware environment, and his hosts are directly attached to storage (SAN). And he has a windows server with 2 arrays, so it'll be the management server with storage node (is a small environment).

The query is, in case I choose a LAN-free backup, the management server could be the windows machine that as well has the agent for vmware or I would need another server with Windows OS to install the agent for VMware? In that case, it could be a virtual machine as well?

Hi Olenka Moreno Acosta,

you can install the Agent onto the same machine with Acronis Management Server, there shouldn't be any conflicts. If the machine will lack resources acting as AMS, Acronis Storage Node and the backup agent, you can move the Agent to a dedicated virtual machine yes.
