Hypervisor is VMWare 6.7
VMs are windows server 2019
Media Agent is a linux one, with VSA installed.
Full VM backup/restore are easily performed.
But for granular restore (live browse) from the VSA backup of a VM, a Windows VM is required.
It have difficulties to find documentation (or best practices) regarding the deployment/configuration of this VM. Simple questions, like which packages to deploy on it… Surely MediaAgent, but only this one?.
A lot of documentation exists when the MediaAgent is running Windows and the VM is linux, as the FREL is available to download, or even how to install a MediaAgent over a linux VM and convert it to FREL.
But when the OSes are reversed, I’m lost.
Has anyone information to share (at least to me ) ?

Issue solved with the support.
- I had defined both linuxMA and WindowsProxy as Proxies of my VMWare client (to ensure no other MA/Proxy would be used to process any VM for this location)
- I also had defined both linuxMA and WindowsProxy as Proxies of each of my VM subclients from this VMWare client.
- With the support, we removed the linuxMA in the Proxy list of each windows VM subclient of this VMWare subclient. They also told me to align proxy setting with the VM OS : mention linux only proxy for a linux VM, or windows proxy for a windows VM.
- Ran a restore, it went fine. Ran backups, it went fine.
Thanks Support team (Ruchi Singh) and the community!
