Removing VM Snapshots

Post by rizks_2000 »

Veeam creates a snapshot on the fly during any backup or replica job process. When done, it cleans up the snapshot by deleting it as well. however, when something goes wrong during the replica or backup process and the job fails, the snapshot doesn't always get removed. What is the best method to remove the snapshot as you don't want snapshots just sitting out there for a specific VM. :?

Hello Anthony,

You may consider removing those snapshots manually using Snapshot Manager from vSphere Client. However, the existing Veeam Backup snapshot will be removed automatically during subsequent Veeam Backup job run.
