vSphere Database Backup

In my google searching to find a way to backup my vSphere database using the SQL 2005 Express that comes with vSphere I found this helpful article: http://communities.vmware.com/message/1057443

You basically just need to install SQL Server Management Studio to manage the database and back it up.

Then from within the SQL Server Management Studio you should be able to backup the VC database by browsing through the databases and right clicking on the VC database, then select Tasks>Back up.

You can download SQL Server Management Studio Express at the following link –http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/express/bb410792.aspx
