    We are running 2 VMware ESX servers. We want to do hot backups of individual vm's.

    Acronis True Image for Linux?
    - Is there a GUI for standard Linux (not X Windows)
    - Can I backup via smb?

    Acronis True Image Enterprise?
    - Will the Linux agent allow me to do disk imaging as well as file level backup?

    Thanx!

    Thanx for the reply!

    Two more questions (since I can't find the answers myself)...

    1) Does True Image for Linux do "hot" backups?

    2) Does True Image for Linux do scheduling?

    Thanx again!
