I have the need to backup an VMware ESXi 6.0 Host Server. I need to backup ONLY the host server and not the guest servers running on it. This is due to the complex config on that particular host server. When I set it as a data source and select it for some reason it selects all of the guests also. If I uncheck the guests it unchecks everything up the tree including the ESXi host itself.

There is no backup method for the ESXi host itself. The VMware APIs only give us access to the guest VMs. That is not a Barracuda limitation. Is any of the configuration able to be resolved by a vCenter server, either virtual or physical? In that case, we could back up that system and the configuration.
