Nice, might give it a try
I switched my main ESXi host to this method and everything works without problems. Since /bootbank gets linked to /tmp automatically, a /tmp/state.tgz gets created automatically every hour or can be manually created by calling /sbin/auto-backup.sh. No vicfg-cfgbackup.pl necessary.
I also added tools.t00 to the boot.cfg. This makes the VMware Tools .iso files available in /5.1.0 and all relevant links get greated automatically so tools installation in guests is seamless as before. It costs more RAM, though.
But RAM is cheap now...
Yeah, tools.t00 is about 210MB uncompressed and not making a real dent in 32GB.
