    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.
