Multiple Snapshots seen on XenServer for Virtual Machines


When performing host-level Backups of XenServer virtual machines (VMs), sometimes there are snapshots seen on the VM with the name "snapshot of <VM UUID><Time stamp>".

The following screenshot shows what it looks like on the XenCenter:

Citrix must be contacted regarding this issue.


These snapshots are created by Citrix itself and can be an issue on the XenServer side.

Similar behavior of creating additional snapshots will also be seen when a snapshot is created manually using the XenCenter.
