I am new to ESXi
Have been using VMWare Workstation and have been backing up the directories where the VM's reside after shutting them down , thus I get a copy of the VMDK, VMX, essentially everything I would need if I had to spin them up on another computer running VMWorkstation.
I have now deployed ESXi and have two VM's running on it (These are production VM's "Win 2K8 Server R2 on both")
Everything appears to be running correctly, now I want to backup the VM's to an external drive or network share in case I have a failure.
What is the best way to protect myself to make sure I could spin up a copy of the VM on another physical ESXi server should the current one have an issue?
