VMware: Limit the maximum number of snapshots

Hello,

in vCenter there is no global configuration parameter to limit the number of snapshots for the virtual machines. The only way is to add a limit in the vmx config file or in vCenter configuration parameters of a single virtual machine.

To set a limit of snapshots which can be taken add

snapshot.maxSnapshots = "6"
or open the configuration parameters window in vCenter and set it there.
