How to Mapped Multiple VM Snapshot in Single Datastore

Hi,

Can anybody tell me about  How to Mapped Multiple VM Snapshot in Single Datastore

Myself has found the KB Article for Creating snapshots in a different location than default virtual machine directory

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=100292...

But this is useful for my question?

Best regards, BharatR--VCP4-Certification #: 79230, If you find this information useful, please award points for "correct" or "helpful".

I'm not sure whether I understand you question correctly. What I understand is that you want to create the snapshots for all of your VMs on a dedicated datastore!? Although this is technically possible, it may not make sense if the datastore is not on the same storage (same connection, same speed), because snapshots are used as chains, i.e. all files are in use by the running VMs.

Please see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1015180
