Before You Begin

Before you create a snapshot job, check the following prerequisites and limitations:

  • Snapshot and PD snapshot jobs do not support instantly recovered VMs that have not completed migration to the Nutanix cluster storage. These jobs will fail until VM data has migrated back to the Nutanix cluster.
  • A PD snapshot job fails if 2 or more VMs have the same name in one protection domain. The issue occurs because Nutanix REST API does not allow to manage VMs via UUID when restoring from PD snapshots. In the case of a PD backup job, it failovers to a regular backup job with a warning. That means that snapshots will be created separately for each VM.
