Quick question that I’m sure will be super easy to answer. I’m still a little new to VMware, and I am currently looking at a couple of VMs that have about 5 snapshots on each and I’d like to/been asked to get rid of the snaps. I’ve read the basic documentation on VMware’s site concerning Snapshots, but one thing I think I may be overthinking is the hierarchy as far as parent/child relationship is concerned and deleting specific snaps?
Essentially, if the Snapshot Manager looks like this:
**you are here**
Is the parent snap1? and snap 2 and 3 the children? Or is the most recent snap the parent?
What happens behind the scenes if I delete snap2? Are the changes there or delta rolled into snap3? Or if I delete snap1, I’m assuming that is the same as Delete All since it would delete and consolidate all changes from snap1,2 and 3 into the current state of the VM? Thanks everyone!!
