This is a follow-up post from Hybrid Backup Recovery VMware virtual machine backup.
Hybrid Backup Recovery support back up the local virtual machine image of VMWare vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Windows Server and Linux Server.
In this post, I will walk through the VMWare virtual machine image backup. On the Hybrid Backup Recovery Gateway, click on Actions, Add Server.
On the Add Server dialog box, input the Type, Hypervisor Host IP Address, Username, Password, Description and click OK to complete.
The Hybrid Backup Recovery Gateway will connect to the vSphere host. After a couple of minute, vSphere server detail will be shown on the Server Information console
Once the VMWare vSphere is connected, next step is to create a backup plan. Click on the Create Backup Plan, input the Plan Name, specify the Retention period, select Backup Type, Full Backup Policy, Incremental Backup Policy and click Next to continue.
Next, is to select one or more virtual machines and click Next to continue.
Finally, verify the virtual machine information and click Create.
The backup job will trigger based on the backup policy defined.
