Creating and Deleting Snapshots

In this article

    You can create and delete storage snapshots in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. The create/delete snapshot operations do not differ from operations that you perform in the management console of the storage system.

    To create a volume snapshot:

    1. Open the Storage Infrastructure view.
    2. In the inventory pane, expand the storage system tree.
    3. Right-click the necessary volume and select Create Snapshot.
    4. In the New Storage Snapshot window, specify a name for the created snapshot and provide a description for the snapshot (if the snapshot description field is available).
    5. [For HPE StoreVirtual] To quiesce VMs on the volume, select the Create application-managed snapshot check box. The storage system will trigger a command to the vCenter Server to quiesce VMs with VMware Tools. VM quiescence will bring VM data to a consistent state before the snapshot is taken. If the Create application-managed snapshot option is not enabled, Veeam Backup & Replication will trigger a point-in-time snapshot.

    Creating and Deleting Snapshots Note:

    To create application-managed snapshots on HPE StoreVirtual, make sure that Application Aware Snapshot Manager is properly installed and configured. If the Application Aware Snapshot Manager is not installed, Veeam Backup & Replication will report an error, and the snapshot will not be created. For more information, see HPE StoreVirtual Application-Aware Snapshot Manager Deployment Guide.

    2. In the inventory pane, expand the storage system tree.
    3. Right-click the necessary snapshot and select Delete snapshot.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
