That is not possible! The VCB proxy has to be a Windows server, and
since ESX is Linux, that won't work. Of course, the whole idea of VCB
is to remove the backup load from the ESX host, so it wouldn't make
sense to have it as the VCB proxy even if you could.
It sounds like what you are referring to as the Consolidated Backup software
is actually the Service Console Backup Enablers for NetWorker. That does
get installed on the ESX host, and is actually just the software dependencies
to allow you to install the NetWorker client on the ESX host. You can then
backup the ESX host as a standard Linux client; however, that does not backup

Install Windows Server 2003 + SAN connectivity, then install
VMware Consolidated Backup:
+ VMware Integration Module to Legato Networker:
+ the standard Windows NetWorker client
