VMware Data Recovery is a product shipped with vSphere essentials plus. It’s GUI product to backup your virtual environement. In my home lab I’m having a physical box with Openfiler configured with iSCSI connection to another physical box running ESXi 4 (evaluation version). Openfiler is a great linux distro that which can provide you some shared storage for your Virtual Infrastructure if you are on a budget.
In the first part of this video series I showed the Installation and basic network configuration of VMware DATA Recovery. During today’s video you will see:
- Adding and formatting virtual disk to the Data Recovery VM.
- Configuring a scheduled backup.
- Looking for some results and logs.
