Guys Our DR facility runs off a couple of GSX hosts (can't afford ESX!). Unfortunately, with GSX, there's no native way to take hot backups of running hosts, so, at the moment, we're relying on a cruddy backup method. Since we can't afford a license for Veritas either I think you can probably guess what it is... That's right - Good ol' Windows Backup! Does anyone know of a free (or dirt cheap) method of running hot backups of GSX VMs? I can't afford to have downtime, so my first port of call (schedule a VM suspend and backup) isn't an option. I've been searching and can't find anything that suggests its possible - largely because the image would be inconsistent. If anyone (Phoenix, Luddym maybe) has any alternative views - or even a definitive 'No - it can't be done' I'd certainly appreciate it Cheers!
