Does anyone know of a method to reliably back up ESXi 5 VM's (no vCenter) to an external USB disk (or a USB disk on another server)? If so, please share!
yeah, in ovf export (File -> Export). not sure if it is a good idea to save to usb directly, as usb i/o is often iffy. it is better to save to your hd and then copy. done many many times with no issues.
