VMware ESXi Host Backups Python Script


This script by default will backup VMware ESXI host configurations to a file and if desired copy to TFTP server

Author - Nick Moody - netassured.co.uk
Last Updated 19th May 2018

Requirements:
1) VMware VCli installed - https://code.vmware.com/tool/vsphere-cli/6.5
2) Intially connect to the host to retrieve the thumbprint
3) TFTP server to send the running configs too

Known limitations:
TFTP is not encrypted so only execute this script on a dedicated management network or over a VPN.
This script backs up the host configuration only it does not backup the VM's running on the host. You will need another backup solution for the VM's https://netassured.co.uk/implementing-vm-backup-solution-home-lab
