VMware Snapshot


Best practices for using snapshots in the vSphere environment (1025279)

  1. Do not use snapshots as backups.
  2. Maximum of 32 snapshots are supported in a chain. However, for a better performance use only 2 to 3 snapshots.
  3. Do not use a single snapshot for more than 72 hours.
  4. Ensure that there are no snapshots before:
    4.1 Performing Storage vMotion in vSphere 4.x and earlier environments.
    4.2 Increasing the virtual machine disk size or virtual RDM.
