Backing up a machine with VMware and Netbackup While Hosting FM

I just learned that an institution is backing up a machine with VMware and Netbackup.


We have FileMaker Server 17 installed, and we hosting database files. 


I always believed that if you used something like VMware or Netbackup to back up a machine, you should close the hosted FileMaker files first.


Please if so, and if they do not do that, is there a serious chance of damaging the hosted live FileMaker database files?


Thank you
