incremental backup + P2V

Created: 13 Jul 2009


I would like to know if it is possible with BESR 8.5 to create a job (or a script) which would incrementaly backup a physical machine, transfer the incremental backup files to an ftp and convert these backup into a fresh virtual machine.
Here would be the steps:

1. locally backup the physical machine (incremental backup)
2. Ftp the files to an ESX machine
3. consolidate the backup files (optional step)
4. Create a virtual machine from the incremental backup files.

This would be a good DR for the physical machines.

Thanks a lot for you help and for your suggestions !
