We currently have one esx4 server with 3 vm's on it. We have a second server running vranger with 2tb of data on it with a tape drive conntected to it. My question is what are some recommendations on backup. We currently do a full backup of each vm per night and then run a tape backup as well. my issues is that after about a week or so the drive itself is full and i have to manual go in and delete some of the vranger backups. is there away to have this done automatically?

Ensure that you have the latest version, 4.5, it will do CBT, ABM, etc..

I wouldn't do full every night, a better way to do this is to use an incremental backup as everything is on disk and you it will spool up all the incrementals and base in tiem of restore.  This will save a lot of space and keep a week or two of backups on disk for faster recovery. It will also save on storage usage.  I typically have 8 savesets and do a full after 7, this way a full is done once a week.
