vm encryption in vmware

2015-03-28, 07:27 AM

I am having a vm i prefered to do not encrypt a CentOS vm the installation. Now i changed my mind ...cause i would like to use an external backup solution.

Is there any way i can make it quick and easy to encrypt an existing CentOS/RedHat vm in vmware?

...before i go ahead and start messing to encrypt the vm myself and maybe have fun loosing data and starting over with a new snapshot i Googled a little and saw this https://pubs.vmware.com/workstation-...F23F4B6DF.html
But it only seems to apply to Vmware Workstation.

Is there any equivalents for vmware vSphere? ...or : someone know a good opensource (if possible) solution i can use to make it easy to encrypt an existing CentOS vm?

Thank you!
