I am new to ESXi.

I have several VMs that I need to backup and re register later.

Can some one provide me the steps.

I have two poweredge serves and connected to NFS where all my VMs are sitting.

i would like to remove the NFS and take those two servers for testing few features.

I would need to wipe out my current configuration and remove the servers.

However i would like to setup the environment same way as now in few months.

what should I do.

for testing purpose i want to do the following.

1. what files i need to backup
2. re register the vm in another server.

what steps should i take?
