Backing Up VMWare

D
Hello - has anyone written a Python script to backup VMWare servers?
If so, I'd appreciate any pointers as to how to go about doing so.
Thanks.

Nothing to do with Python, but... Under Linux, VMware disks are
mountable using the script vmware-mount.pl, see:

and for windows users DiskMount (http://www.vmware.com/download/ws/) does a
similar job (but you cannot mount a suspended machine so you would have to
shut it down first).

I guess though you want something which runs inside the virtual machine to
backup just the files which have changed to a networked drive on the host
machine or a CD/DVD drive?
