This starts off with how many things do… neccessity. My home lab had a drive failure and I needed to rebuild ESXi and all of my servers. I, unfortunately, didn’t have a backup of these servers. Around the same time, I realize that the plus series of Synology have backup support for VMWare. I’m aware that I could use Veeam Windows Agent or Rsync but wanted a cleaner solution.

I’m now the owner of a new DS920+. So let’s set it up…

I pop in my two 16TB Iron Wolf drives and started the DSM install.

Created a new volume using Synology Hybrid RAID and installed Active Backup for Business.

Added my vsphere host and created a new task.

Configured VMs, credentials, encryption, and retention.

Now I don’t have to worry about backing up my VMs.
