We all know that snapshots can grow very quickly, hence in our best interest, as admins, is to make sure VMs are not running on snapshots longer than a few (the less the better) days. Of course, we can run quick PowerShell code to check our inventory, but if you like me like visual content, vROps is a very useful tool.
We can also use vROps to delete snapshots for us, but I will make a special video about this soon, so please stay tuned and observe my blog.
Let’s check vROps and see if we have some snapshots:
- Login to vROps
- Go to RECLAIM tab on the left pane.
- Choose datacenter you want to check
- On the bottom you will see options:
- Powered Off VMs
- Idle VMs
- Orphaned Disks
- Pick Snapshots
- Pick VM
You can see snapshots on the right-hand side. From here you can also delete it or schedule action, however, I will guide you through this process soon.
Please like and share to spread the knowledge in the community.
