What do I need to do to establish backup of ESXi 3.5 or 4 server? It is my understanding that the server runs Linux, so as far as I understand the backup sequence should be:
- create a snapshot of VM
- copy files to a backup location
- delete snapshot
I could probably write a script to create/delete snapshot. Is there cron on ESXi to schedule backup jobs? And another question: I assume there is no rsync or rdiff-backup pre-installed on ESXi. Are there existing pre-compiled binaries known to work with ESXi?
