Deleting VM snapshots copies using vSphere Client

Contributors netapp-ivanad

If you are not familiar with the ESXi CLI or if it is more convenient for your environment, you can delete Virtual Machine (VM) snapshots using vSphere Client.

  • For copy-based transitions, perform these steps before initiating the Storage Cutover operation in the 7-Mode Transition Tool (7MTT).

  • For copy-free transitions, perform these steps before initiating the Export & Halt 7-Mode Systems operation in the 7MTT.

Steps
  1. Open the ESXi host or vCenter Server managing the ESXi host.

  2. Right-click the VM from which you need to remove snapshots.

  3. Open the Snapshot > Snapshot Manager Snapshots window.

  4. Click Delete All.
