VMware Virtual Servers Snapshots

VMware snapshot tools are used to perform snapshots by simply locking the filesystem disk (vmdk) and creating a new VMware disk with the changes made alongside, so the procedure for virtual servers running under VMware looks like: vmdk + vmdk(1) + vmdk(#). 

To view the list of VS Snapshots:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Virtual Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the server you want to back up.
  3. Click the Tools button -> Snapshots.
  4. On the screen that appears, you'll see the list of all VS snapshots.

To create a snapshot for vCenter VS:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Virtual Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the server you want to back up.
  3. Click the Tools button -> Snapshots.
  4. Click the Create New Snapshot button.
  5. Give your snapshot a name.
  6. Click Create Snapshot button.

To delete a VS snapshot, click the Actions button next to the required snaphot, then click Delete.
