Hi,

I recently encountered issues which were caused by a VMware snapshot running for a long time.  

I am looking for a Pshell script I can run which will tell me if there are any snapshots present for all the VMguest on a vcentre.

Why not set a vCenter Server ALARM ? if you are monitoring your servers with vCenter Server.

you could also use Snapwatcher!

A simple script to run on power cli to get the running snapshots and size of the snapshots.

get-vm | Get-Snapshot | select vm, description, sizeGB | Export-Csv XXXPATHXXX

Hope it helps
