    If you have a paid version you should be using VADP-based backup solutions. Veeam has a free edition which will allow you to perform VM backups, but not schedule them in the UI. There are some others that have similar free but limited solutions.

    Hi, the VMcom Backup is now free for non-commercial use (https://vmcom.com). Standalone ESXi hosts are fully supported.
