Hi, I appologise in advance if this is a newby question, but I am trying to get a list of snapshot names from a volume.
using Get-NaSnapshot gives me this list, but the snapshotnames are truncated and end in three dots. I would like to discover how to get at the full names without resorting to SSH
Background : We were using SMVI to create, restore and delete snapshots for a series of VMWare guests - this has the unfortunate side effect of inflating the snapshot to full size if we ever go back to one, so we are having to revert to doing snaprestores and managing the VMWare side ourselves. This is all driven by scripts in the back end, as the end users who need to take and restore the snapshots are non-technical.
There is an SMVI command in perl that gets the snapshot list and has the whole filename, I have been told I need to convert to PowerShell to use snaprestore and the snapshot list does not quite fit what I need (I store info in the snapshot names)
