VMware: Limit the maximum number of snapshots


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.

  1. The only KB I could find for this only lists support up to VCenter Server 5.1.x Is it supported on newer version as well?
