This isn't exactly a question for how to do something, more of a yes or no question with a little detail.  If I migrate a VM from one datastore to another using in VMware 4.x, will future snapshots be created on the new datastore?  Or will they continue to be created on the old datastore?  Thanks!

Hello,

If you are moving all disks to a new datastore then any future snapshots will be created and stored on the datastore you moved the VM to.
