With vmware Workstation there is a nice feture to crete Snaps, Clones and Linked clones.
There are two options to do so:
One is the UI, the second one is use VIX-API / vmrun.
For the Second option i created a few Powershell cmdlets that will be available soon to create Snapshots:
get-vmx | new-vmxsnapshot
This Produces a new Snapshot for all VM´s, if no Name s Specified all Snapsots will have the Time the command is issued as Name.
As you can see from the VMware Snapsot Manager, the newly Created Snapsot has a Name 04-30-2014_08-06-03.
There is also an older Snapshot Available.
I Could browse the Snapshots aslo with
get-vmx | get-vmxsnapshot
If i want to Remove all Snapshots form All VM´s, here comes Powershell again with Pipelining !
get-vmx | get-vmxsnapshot | remove-vmxsnapshot
That will remove all Snapshots. You Can also verify the delteion from the UI
