Possible to backup esxi config without VM?

I guess it would be missing the source argument, something like:

./xsibackup PATH_TO_REPO --config-backup
But I'm not sure it will like arg 1 for the source being missing? Or maybe there's some appropriate placeholding null arg for Source?

I'm upgrading ESXI and am thinking I don't want my esxi backup buried with the backup for a specific VM.

Re: Possible to backup esxi config without VM?

The config backups are placed in a folder in the backup repository or in the replicated VM.
What do you mean by buried?, the config backup is easily accessible.
If you just want to backup the (c)ESXi host config, script and .tar the /etc folder that's what a config backup is in the end.

Re: Possible to backup esxi config without VM?

Ok thanks - so even though one backs up config with the --config-backup switch when backing up a vm(s), the backed up config isn't stored within the VM's backup hierarchy or attached to a vm in any way. The config backup was just created at the same time.
