    Can you export those vmdk files to a non-ESX server?



    If I recall correectly, the vmdk files can be exported in COW format to non-vmfs partitions, at which point they're just files like anything else, and can be moved to any server that does support storage agent.

    I came across this post about TSM and vmware. There is a product that could help with this issue till TSM supports Vmware.



    esxRanger GUI will allow you to compress and send the vmware disk files, live while running to a windows host. Then you can use the TSM windows agent to sweep the esxRanger backups.



    Take a look and see if this helps.
