You can take a snapshot of a virtual machine. After you take the snapshot, you can revert all the virtual machines to the most recent snapshot, or remove the snapshot.

About this task

Prerequisites

Verify that the virtual machine is not connected to an independent disk.

Procedure

  1. Select My Cloud > VMs.
  2. Right-click the vApp and select Create Snapshot.
  3. Click OK.
