Hi there,

A client hired us to install a new DELL T340 PE server running Vmware ESXI 7 U2 for them.
They want to be able to backup the 2 vms without shutting them down.

I had explained that you need a licensed version of ESXI to enable the APIs to do this.

They are telling me that with version 7 this is no longer the case?

I don't believe this to be true.

Look forward to your feedback on this
