Bash script that will make a backup of all running VMware Server 2.0 virtual machines in your linux system and send you an e-mail report with the details (such as spare room in target, time that took to backup each VM) in HTML. It will stop each virtual machine, back it up and start it again before copying the next one minimizing downtime. It supports local hard drives, NFS, Samba and virtually any storage that can be mounted in a Linux filesystem. It will delete old backups on a configurable basis making it possible to build an unattended backup system. It has some dependencies in order to send the e-mail report: any sendmail compatible MTA
- Unattended backup of virtual machines
