I currently run two XenServers with a few VMs.

I have been looking into this script solution or possibly this one, but it relies on an NFS share.

My environment is mostly Windows and I'd prefer to backup the whole VMs to Windows backup machines.

follow the The backup python script has a configuration file with the backup to location. If you mount the windows share (with mount.cifs), you can use the backup script.

You can mount the windows share with something like:

mount.cifs //IP or Windows Server Name/sharename /backupmountpoint/ -o user=username password=password domain=Domain
