  • Snapshot Deletion?


    Just wondering if it is possible to schedule a deletion of a snapshot? I know you can schedule a snapshot creation but I'd like to be able to set it so a snapshot can be deleted after say 24 hrs.
    Is this possible???Thanks.

        sooooo..... why have you posted in the Virtual Server/Virtual PC forum? Surely you would be better posting in the VMWare forum... and with full information about your needs?

        For instance - VMWare is a technology - are you using VMware Workstation? VMWare Server? ESX? What version?

          I'm using VMWare Infrastructure Client, we run VMWare ESX Server 3.5.0.

          I use the snapshot Manager to take snapshots but just wondering if there is a tool\utility to automaticallt stop the snapshot after a pre-defined time?

              If you know your way around the service console, you could easily script it using cron and the vmware-cmd cfg removesnapshots command.
