Delete virtual machine snapshots

Overview

As an administrator, you can delete snapshots that you no longer require for the virtual machines. 

  • If you are a cloud administrator, you can delete snapshots for a virtual machine.
  • If you are a group administrator, you can delete snapshots for virtual machines belonging to the administrative groups you manage.

After you delete a snapshot, Druva Phoenix purges the snapshot data from the storage, thus freeing up space.

Note: You cannot delete the most recent snapshot of a virtual machine.

  1. Log in to the Management Console.
  2. Select your Organization if Organizations are enabled.
  3. On the menu bar, click Protect > Nutanix AHV.
