Your environment might consist of vCenter Server or a vCenter Server Appliance with an embedded Platform Services Controller. You can use vSphere Data Protection to restore a vCenter Server environment with an embedded Platform Services Controller.
You can back up and restore only virtual machines that contain vCenter Server, vCenter Server Appliance, and Platform Services Controller. You cannot back up and restore physical machines that are running vCenter Server by using vSphere Data Protection.
What to do next
