  • Backing up VM’s without access to vCentert ?
    Posted: 03-23-2019, 10:11 AM


    We have been asked to back up VM’s in an invironment where we have none, or limited access to the vcenter.

    But we will get full access to the ESXi servers where the VM’s are hosted.

    Will it be possible to configure Virtual Server on the ESXi client and be able to back up the VM’s without vCenter access ?

    If not. Any idea how to solve it.

    You should be able to point directly to an ESX host instead of the Vcenter when configuring the client for backup.
