Maintain control of VMware VM snapshot over the Citrix Non-persistent VM deployed by MCS ?
Posted on 2014-04-22
By using Citrix XenDesktop 7.5 and VMware vSphere 5.1u1 using MCS delivery method.
I have successfully deployed 50x Windows 7 desktop VM and also Windows Server 2008 Std. R2 (for XenApp) in my VMFS data store.
However, the VM is growing bigger overtime even after user log off from the session. To make things even worse, the VM was reported to have huge snapshot that cannot be closed / committed from vSphere console.
So how can I make sure that the VM snapshot is always at the manageable level to avoid datastore crash ?
