I have been testing with Veeam across two ESX hosts on our DR Site. I have failed over one VM to a fairly recent rollback point on the secondary server and it is all running happily. However, there is still an open snapshot called "Veeam Backup running snapshot" on my test VM on the secondary host. Can i delete this snapshot? The backup is not running and all replication completed successfully before i failed over. Can you explain why this is please?

Please have a look at User Guide (page 17) for more information about the failover procedure:

If you plan to continue doing replicas for this particluar VM (using it as a target), you need to keep the snapshot untouched.
Hope it helps!
