How do I backup the ESXI (free) configuration and network topology

Last Modified: 2013-11-11
Hi Team,

   We have a pilot deployment of the esxi 4.0 (free version) and today, we inadvertently deleted a virtual switch.   I have been looking for an elegant way to backup the esxi configuration, network topology, etc...I don't need to backup the guest..just the host config.

   Can anyone suggest some utilities, CLI commands or GUI tools to do this.  I keep seeing this link --->  http://www.itsallvirtual.com/   but it doesn't look current.

  What do you guys use?
