There are many ways to tackle the problem of quickly redeploying or recovering ESXi hosts, Host profiles, Auto deploy etc.. however such options are either out of reach for SME/SMB users where their license does not cover such features or they have very small clusters of which Auto deploy etc would perhaps be considered overkill. So how can we backup the config of our ESXi hosts? There is a great command you can use in vSphere CLI ”vicfg-cfgbackup.
