Contributors netapp-ivanad Download PDF of this page

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.
