Can vmotion effect SnapShots in a Datastore on the storage?

SnapShots will be changed as we remove or change the data in the datastore.

My question, can vmotion in vSphere change the size of SnapShots in a datastore on the storage?

Snapshot "size" is amount of changed or deleted data. vMotion will delete data on source. So yes, it will cause snapshot "growth".

 

P.S. I mean of course Storage vMotion. Normal vMotion works with shared datastore, so it won't not have any effect.

What is the difference bwteen storage vmotion and normal vmotion?

 

the vmotion I am talking about is the Vsphere vmotion which move VM's from one datastore to other. Woud this effect snapshots?
