We're been using the vSphere plugin from Snapcenter to snapshot our datastores and when possible with the VM consistency option enabled.
There are a few cases when we're asked by developers and users to stop the vSphere snapshot on certain VMs as it seems to impact their production. What is annoying is that the VM consistency option is set at the policy / resource group level meaning all the VMs from all the Datastores added to those groups will have or not have the vSphere snapshot running.
Is there a way to keep the VM consistency option active but only exclude certain VMs from it? This would be of great advantage.
The VM consistency is an options within the policy. If you wanting to have some VMs backup without that option i would suggest create a different policy for those specific VMs. Keep in mind that Resource groups can contain any combination of VMs and datastores. So you can have separate RG with a specific policy and include/exclude the VM consistency option.
