Question on storage integration snapshots

Post by techuser13 » Apr 25, 2017 1:43 pm

Hello,

When Veeam is setup to use Storage Integrated snapshots, should vCenter be performing any snapshot operations on the VM at that point? I thought the snapshot operation would be performed on the SAN datastore eliminating any potential performance issues during a traditional vCenter snapshot operation. I have a job configured with storage integration and I'm still seeing vCenter snapshots taking place with Veeam temporarily.

VMware snapshots will still be created and preserved for a short period of time, unless you use snapshot-only jobs. Thanks.
