Just getting started with VB and purchased a Commercial license for a single ESXi host. I was able to muddle through setting it up and backing up using Cron to a Backblaze B2. I think it’s working (I’m getting sucessful email reports)
But, I need to test this to be able to sleep at night. I want to add the remote B2 repo to my workstation (using Duplicacy?) and do a test restore and make sure I can successfully boot up the backed up VMs. I tried to do this but I am getting stuck. Is this the right command to set up the local directory?
duplicacy init <vm-name>@<esxi-hostname> b2://VB-BUCKETNAME
Is there a step-by-step guide for this somewhere? I want to be able to do simple things like:
- fetch a list of VMs that are available in a B2 repo
- see the date of the last successful backup
- download the latest snapshot, or a specific snapshot
- view the size of a VM in the bucket
Sorry if I overlooked this info in the docs but I couldn’t find it.
