Automate vCenter backup to avoid the hassle of manual backup
December 12, 2017 – 1:55 am | Comments Off on Automate vCenter backup to avoid the hassle of manual backup

Nowadays, vCenter backup and recovery are easier to use; however, it’s still a highly manual process when used out of the box. The best workaround is to automate the backup process. In this article, we’ll look at how to do exactly that for vCenter Server Appliance versions 6.5 and above, as well as how to export data. If you only need to do a quick backup, the best method is to log in to vCSA directly. Notice the backup link in the cluster of buttons in the top right-hand corner of Figure A.

Beyond that, the out-of-the-box — or, rather, downloadable — vCenter backup script is simple and lacks the ability to automatically move the backup off the server. If vCSA is corrupted, you’ll lose the backup as well and will need to manually purge the older files. To resolve this issue, I use a more advanced backup script developed by VMware’s support team. So far as I’m aware, it should be available upon request.
