Okay, I want to make sure that I do this correctly. I have a VM and about 3 days ago created a snapshot for testing purposes. We were having a problem with Veeam backups and they were indicating it might be a problem with creating the snapshot. Veeam was able to discover the problem with a VSS provider and now the backup is working.
So what to do with the snapshot. My thought is that I just delete it, but very early on I tried this and deleted the snapshot and the server died. It happened to be the exchange server and we had to completely rebuild. So I am a little nervous.
So have I got this right or backwards.
If I create a snapshot that is in place for a week and i want to make it go away (update worked fine, testing was fine, etc. ) I click the button that says "Delete". Server is fine and we go our happy way with any changes that have been made in the last several days still intact.
If I create a snapshot and the server isn't fine, I click the button that says "Go To" and I am right back to where I started and I lose any changes that were made in the last several days.
