vmware vmdk backup
I dont have Ent Client License for vmware off-host backup, while I need to get vmdk backup.
What would be the best scenario to backup vmdk files?
1. Is it possible to install client agent in ESX servers and take vmdk files as a regular file system backup?
2. Any possibility to use VCB backup? ( I use VMware vSphere 5.1 )
3. Any best practice scenario, please?
