Do VMsnapshots depend on Vcenter.

I would like to know if VM Snapshoting can continue if there is no Vcenter present.

Thank you

Hi,

Yes, like I said snapshot are done in ESXi host level. If you take a snapshot using vCenter and then while snapshot is creating you lose vCenter, snapshot will still continue to be created in the host.

Because snapshot is initiated by vpxuser in the ESXi host.

Thank you.

So if Vcenter is done while the Snapshot is running. there will be no interruption as long as the ESX host is up and running
