leaving snapshot alone.

Post by Rohail2004 »

Sometime I have noticed that Veeam does not remove the snapshot taken during backup, most of time it happens when there was a backup server issue and couldnt finish the job. What's the best practice to deal with those temporary veeam snapshot? should I remove it manually or leave it for Veeam to remove it next time it run the backup job for that particular VM?

I'd appreciate a response on this... Thanks.

Normally, when a job starts it looks for snapshot which might have stayed after previous run. If it's found, the job attempts to remove it. If for some reason (say vCenter is busy) snapshot can not be removed automatically, feel free to remove it manually.
