I've currently got the free esxi version running with a VM running on it. As it's free, I can't currently take any real snapshots of it.

I want to take a snapshot of the entire VM and not individual files. For that, would I have to:

1) Upgrade my Esxi free to something else? (any recommendations?)
2) Get another backup exec for vm agent?

Thanks for looking people
