vsphere 5.5, powercli , snapshot individual disk

Is there a way to snapshot an individual disk on a virtual machine remotely?  I see that I can snapshot the entire VM, but I need to know if I can snapshot a single disk.

thanks

I'm not aware of a command to create a snapshot for only a virtual disk rather than for the whole VM. What you can do - in case this is what you want to achieve - is to configure the VM's other disks as "independent-persistent" which will exclude them from snapshots.

Hi

Welcome to communities.

Agree with AP but have alternate option .

please user two VHD and schedule sync tool  like win merge,

it will only copy the differential or incremental copy .
