Hi, Piccolo.

I believe, it should be possible with the usage of PowerShell (Veeam PSSnapin in conjunction with VMware PowerCLI). From my perspective, the algorithm should be as the following:

• Shutdown a given VM (PowerCLI)
• Start a VB&R Job (Veeam PSSnapin)
• Once the snapshot of VM is taken, poweron a VM (PowerCLI)

That’s all.

Thanks.
