One of the Windows Server vm's has become unstable and slow, and its web app will be migrated to a new vm during the next maintenance period. In the interim I'd like to restore a duplicate from volume snapshot (to run diags on) using VSC Web Client. The VSC 6.0 Admin Guide walks through mounting a snap and restoring the VM, but it does not appear a vm can be restored without impacting the original.
Is there a method where a VM can be restored from snap while the original VM continues running in the ESX 6.0 cluster? Documented?
