another helpful change maybe to allow us to run a active full of an individual VM within a job.

This will require some quite major job architecture, which is planned - but this requires a major release runway, so not something we can add last minute to v10.

By the way, based on these events we're now looking at adding one last minute feature to v10: automatic CBT reset on each VM when Active Full backup is performed. Looking back at the past few CBT bugs, having this would have helped everyone to make sure they have a good backup without having to mess with CBT reset scripts.
better than nothing but doesn't solve the problem if you don't use active full, and for all the backup between a revert to snapshot (monday for example) and an active full (sunday)

and reset the CBT before the active full :D

the best thing though would be for vmware to fix this huge bug "by design" and automatically reset the CBT when you revert a snapshot

Currently, their intention is to disable CBT following snapshot revert.
