Trying to add more datstore space with USB attached drive so I can run snapshot backups
I found this Nice article
I got this from a question you posted
I have a ESXi 6.0 Host with many VM Guests running
Windows 2012 Windows 2008 Windows 2003 Unbuntu
VMA Host Windows 7 Windows XP and Windows 8.1
Looking for a method to automate the snapshots
the ghettoVCB looks like it will fit my needs since I have a Free License of ESXi this runs in my Home I do testing here for my work etc.
My real question here is can I add a USB drive to my ESxi Host and make it a Datastore? I am not looking for any performance here just want to backup my VM guests on a regular basis
I now NAS would work too but USB is a lost cost method.
What format must the drives be in to become a datstore?
I have a 1TB usb drive connected now to my ESXi 6.0 Host but it is not being seen by the Host or the guests.
