    Unfortunately the VMware components that are required to be install on the DPM server to support VMware backup is not yet supported on Windows server 2016.  We need to wait for VMWare to support those components on Windows server 2016 before we can enable that feature on DPM 2016 since that supports upgrading to Windows Server 2016.

  • Another customer here that needs VMWare support on 2016. 

    The support matrix page is a ghost town.
