Je me demande quel est le moyen le plus fiable de sauvegarder une machine virtuelle sous VMWare 5.1 .

1. En sauvegardant le vmdk par l'agent VMWare ?

2. En utilisant l'agent Windows, sans passer par l'agent VMWare ?

Le but étant de pouvoir, en cas de problème, restaurer de la manière la plus fiable, une machine complète.

Hello Skesser,

   From my point of view "Safeguarding the vmdk by VMWare agent" is the most reliable way to backup the Virtual Machines on VMware 5.1.

De mon point de vue "sauvegarde de la VMDK VMWare par l'agent" est le moyen le plus fiable pour sauvegarder les machines virtuelles de VMware sur 5.1.

To restore a complete VM, it is much faster to restore with the Vmware Agent.
If you would use the traditional agent, you must first create a VM, install Windows, install BE Agent, and then restore.
With the Vmware Agent, you can skipp all those steps, and immediately start restore of the complete VM.

...if you want GRT restores of the VM and/or application installed, then you need to install the RAWS agent as well. Check below for the best practices:
