Ok! The confusion is probably coming from that for any application running on Linux usually some native pre-freeze/post-thaw scripts are required. If application vendor does not provide it, then it should be safe to use just VMware Tools Quiescence option.

Hey there,

Since the topic is still not clear, I did setup the vmware backup db script on cron.daily and dump db into /storage/autodeploy/ as I do not use this feature, this volume has free space.

I tested this volume is inside the vcsa veeam backup, so if needed I can just use the vmware import script.

And now I can say my DB is backed up and not "should be" ;) ;)

[MERGED] Backing up Linux VCenter (VCSA) steps with VBR 9 ?

Veeam Logoby albertwt » Tue May 02, 2017 12:56 pm

Hi All,

I've just migrated to VCSA v6.5 from Windows VCenter server.
Now, what's the best practice or steps to backup the VCenter server safely?

I'm using Veeam Backup & Replication 9.0.0.1715, do I need to create separate backup job since this is Linux VM not to be backed up with other Windows VM for maximizing data deduplication?

Hi Alex,

Thnks for the assistance, the new VCenter server VCSA v6.5 is running on VMware Photon OS™ [Minimal Linux Container Host], so does the article mentioned is still applicable?
