cmd's to switch between snapshots

Hi ,

I have VMWare Vcenter installed on my machine to access our Virtual Machines hosted on a ESX Server . Is it possible for me to issue cmd line commands fro my machine to switch snapshot's for our virtual machine.

Example :

VirtualMachine ( A ) hosted on ESX server ( B )

My Machine ( C )

Let's say A has 3 snapshots (1,2,3)

I should be able to issue a cmd on C which should revert the snapshot on A from 3 to 1. Is it possible if yes where should i go to find that information .

Your help is highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Remo

This can be accomplished with PowerCLI, which extends Microsoft's Powershell. I've moved this thread to the PowerCLI forums.

With the Set-VM cmdlet and the Snapshot parameter you can revert to a snapshot.

An example

$snapName = "MySnapshot"

$vmName = "MyVM"

$vm = Get-VM -Name $vmName

$snap = Get-Snapshot -VM $vm -Name $snapName

Set-VM -VM $vm -Snapshot $snap -Confirm:$false
