I need to extend the C drive of a VM. I plan to do this using a helper VM, and attach the OS vmdk to another helper VM. But first, I need to backup the VM.
Haven't really had to backup a VM before. Normally we use Veeam, but I just want to take a backup now as a secondary precautionary method.
What's a better way to do this from within vSphere Client 5.1 -- either create a Clone or right-click VM > NetApp > Backup and Recovery > Backup Now?
