    Backing up a shutdown VM with independent VMDKs

    rKrs Lurker

      Hello everyone,

       

      I've been using ghettoVCB for a while now and it works great! but now I'm testing how to backup a VM with persistent storage.

       

       

      I've read the documentation and as I understand it, ghettoVCB cannot backup independent disks because they do not support snapshots, which is fine for hot backups but what about shutdown VMs? doesn't that remove the need for snapshots and turn the backup job into a simple copy one? or are there some pitfalls which prohibit it?

       

      And is there an existing way which ghettVCB can be configured to backup independent disks?
