@lamw pointed me out via twitter to the “diy” VCB Management Console. The “vcbMC” is a front end for scheduling and creating backup jobs based on VMware Consolidated Backup. As “athlon_crazy” points out you don’t need to remember all the VCB commands and parameters. You can use vcbMC to browse all your VM’s and back them up according to the schedule you created:
I haven’t tested it myself so far unfortunately, make sure to test the results of the backup.
