I have recently become a VMWare reseller and have setup a test server running 4 different sessions via vSphere.  they are different Microsoft Server versions.

I'd like to replicate a server crash and full restore.  IE, let's say one of the virtual sessions fails and can't be brought back up, I'd like to take some more of the disk space and memory on the ESXi server and create a new virtual session, then rebuild a snapshot, or backup of that server.  

I'm trying to learn how to sell the features of virtualization but want to experiment with crashes and recoveries first.

I have tried VEEAM and Backup Exec with not much luck.

VEEAM's free version doesn't seem to want to work properly and Backup Exec is just a bit tricky.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be appreciative!
