I have a VMWare ESXi installation. This runs on a linux kernel. I am able to SSH to it with puTTY and WinSCP.

What I need is a way to script it so when I run a file it copies a folder from Folder A to Folder B on the linux side.

Is there a way to do this, Im not sure how to pass an automated script to it.

Thanks

I found out what I needed. This was a small part of a bigger solution. The problem was the free VMWare ESXi does not have a free automated backup strategy. Well I developed one with open source tools thats completely legal and I now have running on more than 10 servers.

Here is the link to the VMware Thread that outlines the steps.

Hope it helps someone!

I was thinking rsync with a cron job. Glad you found a solution. :)
