Merging Vmware snapshot file
Posted on 2011-03-01
If I understand when creating a snapshot in vmware, a delta file gets created. Any new data that gets written to disk goes to the delta file, this will help us to revert back to the old version.
- I would like to know how to manually merge the Delta file with the original file?
- I also would like to know when using back up image level (VrangerPro) or file level (Netbackup), if the delta file gets merged to the orginal file. If we have multiple snapshot then perform a backup, would this merge all the snapshots(delta files) with the original file or just the last snapshot?
- If I go to vmware and check the snapshots after the back, what am I supposed to see there? just the original file?
