If vCenter is backed up in a traditional manner, at the storage array level, interview the SA to determine configuration and schedule.
For vCenter native backup functionality, open the Virtual Appliance Management Interface (VAMI) by navigating to https://:5480.
Log in with local operating system administrative credentials or with a Single Sign-On (SSO) account that is a member of the "SystemConfiguration.BashShellAdministrator" group.
Select "Backup" on the left navigation pane.
On the resulting pane on the right, verify the "Status" is "Enabled".
Click "Status" to expand the backup details.
If vCenter server backups are not configured and there is no other vCenter backup system, this is a finding.
If the backup configuration is not set to a proper, reachable location or if the schedule is anything less frequent than "Daily", this is a finding.
