One of my fav VMware ESX free tools

David Davis David Davis Profile: David Davis

One of my favorite new VMware ESX Server free tools is VM Explorer (VMX) by Trilead. This is a free tool (commercial version also available) that is used to backup, restore, and perform basic management of VMware ESX hosts. Some of the coolest features are- 

  • server to server backup (including backup to the windows PC running VMX or a Linux server)
  • Snapshot management
  • SSH to the console of the server
  • Scheduled backup (with the upgraded commericial version)
  • and more

One of the coolest things is that the free version has just about every feature except the scheduled backup. Download your copy of VM Explorer and try it out for yourself!
