TSM 6.4: Backup VMware VM Template

In TSM 6.4, there is a new parameter in the VMware backup options : –vmenabletemplatebackups

If you want to backup the VMware VM template, you need to add ‘-vmenabletemplatebackups=yes’ in your VMware backup job schedule options.

Here is a example:

update sched vmware Weekly_full OPTions=’-vmfulltype=vstor -vmbackuptype=fullvm -asnodename=DATACENTER-01 -vmprocessvmwithindependent=yes -vmprocessvmwithprdm=yes -vmenabletemplatebackups=yes -domain.vmfull=”vmfolder=Weekly-Backup” -MODE=FULL’
