ESXi 4 - backup questions - how do I use ghettoVCBg2.pl?
Posted on 2009-07-15
I have some questions about my backups for my VM's. I have installed my ESXi 4 server and I have a Win2k8 Standard VM, and a couple XP Pro VM's. I also just installed the vMA appliance successfully (I think!).
1. Is this where I run the ghettoVCBg2.pl script for backups (on the vMA)? And is that script strictly for backing up the VM and it's config files, or is it for backing up the data in the VM?
2. What should I backup for the ESXi box, for disaster recovery?
3. Can I use a USB drive attached to a local pc (or even a remote pc, across a VPN tunnel) for any of these backups?
thanks in advance
