Removing a snap

Last Modified: 2019-12-04
I am running esxi 5.5 on a vsphere client (not web).  It is in our test lab.

I was updating our PSQL database from 10 to 13.  I took a snapshot prior to the upgrade.  Installed the upgraded software and it performed poorly.  We decided to abandon that upgrade option and wait for 14.

I opened the snapshot manager and clicked GoTo Snap to roll back to the previous server state.  Worked perfectly.

However, I assumed that once I rolled back, the snap would be removed.  It was not.  So now if I delete the snap, I suppose it will write the changes and I'll end up on 13 again.  How do I delete the snap without writing the changes.
