      Did you know that you can backup the configutation of VMware hosts? Here’s how to backup the VMware host configutation:

      1. Log onto the vCenter server
      2. Run the following Vsphere PowerCLI commandlet:

        Connect-VIServer -server <> -User root -Password <>

        Get-VMHostFirmware -vmhost <> -backupconfiguration -destination C:\hostbackup

      The VMware host configuration will then be backed up to C:\hostbackup on the vCenter server.
