most of databases such as SQL and Exchange mail servers , creates log files before they get committed to the Database.
If I understand VMware creates Delta file (Snapshot).
if I understand when the Delta file is created new SQL logs will be created in the Delta file .
Now when the Delta file(snapshot) gets deleted, will the logs be committed to the SQL/Exchange Database itself, or just to folder in SQL/Exchange servers then the SQL/Exchange engine will be responsible for committing them to the Database ?
I have been told that Databases are not recommended to be snapshotted by VMware, but I cannot confirm that.
Any clarifications ?
