          I'm not aware of products that work with VMware Server but you might check VEEAM Backup. The issue is obtaining the rights to back up the .vmdk which VMware Server has exclusive access to via a lock.

          I'd recommend a snapshot, however, deleting the snapshot means shutting down the VM.

            Bah!!!
            Have to start keeping track of the names of these products.

            that is what happens when you don't use them (we have another solution..)
