Based on the provided screenshot, the specified regkey should have taken effect indeed. So, the described behaviour looks unexpected. Kindly, keep working with our support team and update the topic once the resolution is found. Thanks.

FYI for future reference, according to RnD and Support, the registry key has to be added in two places. Here is the correct information to disable Snapshot Hunter in v9

Name: DisableAutoSnapshotConsolidation
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1

Create the following in both of the following locations:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication

Thanks and good luck!

Eric, what is your support case number? I'd like to know the details, since Wow6432Node should not be involved.

I'm more interested in the fact why the Wow6432Node node took effect (if it did) as it actually should not, since this value is read by the 64-bit component. I will look into the case and also involve QA to verify this fact.
