Do we can able to backup of ESXi host? Or any recommendation also appreciated.
Best answer by Stuart Painter
Thanks for the question, but it’s not exactly clear what the objectives or expectations are from the question.
I’m not sure if:
- You want to protect the ESXi host itself (not the VMs)
- You want to protect VMs on ESXi host
I don’t believe we have capabilities to protect ESXi host itself, but deploying a host should be a trivial task.
We do have some capabilities for protecting vCenter physical host if this is present in your environment: https://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11_sp20/article?p=125593.htm
If you want to protect VMs hosted on an ESXi host, then this should be as simple as configuring the VSA agent to the ESXi host address instead of the vCenter and use the ESXi host root credentials.
