How to cron job vmware backups?

Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I want to backup a vmware server that has several guest os's.

What do I need to backup? Do I need to shut down the guest os's before the backup?

I am thinking about just writing a scrip that copies off the vmhd's to another box. Will that work? Don't I need configs?
