Using VMWare ESXi 6.7.0 with Essentials licensing, I would like to backup my VMs to a plugged External HD. Previously we did it with Veeam because we were using a Windows Server, but now with their Hypervisor we couldn't find some way to do it.
What I've already seen:
Veeam - Couldn't find an apropriate solution for what we need, is it possible to install it or use remotely without paid agent solutions?
OVF Export - From what I did understand by reading this feature would use the network to export the VM. That´s not exactly what I'm looking for (if it's this)
ghettoVCB.sh - I'm not sure if this one works with this version, from what I did read it works with version 5 and 4.
Is there any other way to achieve this using free alternatives to communicate with ESXi 6.7?
Thank you very much!
