I was just wondering whether I missed something or whether I found a potentially missing feature
For automated scruipt execution, I see the following options:
1. Pre Job
2. Pre VMware snapshot creation freeze
3. Post Vm ware snapshot creation thaw
4. Post Job
But what I am looking for is a Post VMware snapshot removal script executor.
Did I miss anything there?
As we now make use of storage snapshot integration, I do see the need for this in order to take care of some stubborn applications and their missing fault tolerance for database server freezes in course of the VMware snapshot creation and removal. There is a time frame during which there are no VMware snapshots on a VM while the backup server pulls data from the storage snapshot. This is the time frame that I would have to wait if I wanted to use post job scripts.
Thanks for any insight. Regards

Sorry for the delayed response
In other words, THIS is what you want, right?
Create Vmware Snap ----> Create Storage Snap ----> Delete Vmware Snap ----> [YOUR SCRIPT] ----> ...
BTW, would you give an example of an applications that is having problems after snapshot creation/deletion, please?
