vCenter 7.0.3 19717403 - "bulk" snapshots

Jump to solution

So we've been letting some internal customers (who have access to vCenter) take snapshots of their VMs by going to one of their folders, clicking on the VM tab and then selecting multiple (often many) VMs and then doing a "right-click, Snapshots, Take snapshot" - which lets them take a bulk snapshot of their environment. As of the vCenter 7.0.3 Build 19717403, VMware seems to have taken this functionality away - has anyone used/seen this before? I helped them out this morning by doing it via PowerCLI, but would like for this to be self-service for them.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the update - are you running 7.0 U3f (20051473) or U3g (20150588)? 

Looks like we have another vCSA update in our near future...

Thanks for everyone's input.  I worked with tech support and they were able to replicate the behavior (i.e. 7.0 U3e doesn't allow simultaneous multi-VM snapshots but rolling to 7.0 U3g works).

Looks like we have a vCSA upgrade in our future...

Thanks again!

Chris
