Backing up Virtual machines
I have a couple of VMs running on ESXi 4. The datastore is a local disk but I am not happy just leaving it there.
I dont want to have to pay for a full backup solution as we cannot afford it. A regular backup isnt really needed either, just a manual one every couple of days will do as the data doesnt change a lot.
I was thinking of connecting an NFS share from an applicance we have but would it just be a case of telling it to move the folder on the datastore to this new datastore running NFS? I am quite happy to do this manually every few days.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
