How do VSC snapshots work?

tarlcabot

When you set up a snapshot in VSC, rather than volume names, you provide VM names.  What exactly is being snapshot when using this tool?  Google hasn't found me the answer yet, hoping somebody here can point me in the right direction.  Thanks!

Hi,

VSC do a Vmware snapshot of each VM (for quiescing filesystem) you selected, then do a volume snapshot of the Volumes hosting this VMs. Once the volume snapshot is done the Vmware snapshot created is deleted.

hope this help

You have the option to skip VMware snapshot creation though.
