Have someone succeeded to deploy rdiff-backup to ESXi platform? If yes, are there any instructions how to do that?

it's not really rdiff-backup deployment but i:

  1. use ghettoVCB to transfer via NFS backups of vms from esxi to another machine in the same lan
  2. run rdiff-backup to create backup with 2 weeks of diffs
  3. rsync created repository to remote site
