Saving configuration on ESX

Saving configuration on ESX

Just wondering if anyone had a script or a way to save the configuration set up on ESX 3.5 enterprise. It would be nice to save those in case of a complete melt down of an ESX server. I have the config documented so it would be some work to get back but not impossible. I am just looking for easy.


The answer is always "PEBKAC!"

Veeam Configurator would be an option to look at.

RE: Saving configuration on ESX

The ESX installation itself should be throw away. Rather than attempt to save the information, you should focus on an installation script so that all your ESX hosts are installed in the same way. If a host should die, or need replacement or End-of-Life, you should have a script that will build you a new server in a few minutes.
