Retention Policy for Snapshots
For Nutanix AHV native snapshots, you specify retention policy restore points. Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV retains the number of latest restore points defined in job scheduling settings as described in sections Creating Snapshot Jobs and Creating Protection Domain Snapshots Jobs.
During every successful backup session, Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV creates a new restore point. If Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV detects that the number of restore points in the snapshot chain exceeds the retention limit, it removes the earliest restore point from the chain.
