Event based Snapshot creation and reverting in ESXi?

Hi,

I would like to know if there is a way to create a snapshot based on a event in the same Windows Guest machine? For example when a program closes in the guest you create a snapshot of the machine.

And the same with reverting to the latest snapshot?

Or is there a supported third party application?

Alas I could not find any information about this.

Thanks!

Unfortunately there isn't an out of the box product for that.

Nevertheless it might be possible to do with some coding.

Hey,

You will need to do some custom development here. Maybe you can fill a log or send some attributes when the service stopped to an external program to run a REST API Call to trigger the Snapshot using the vSphere API.

However as I said this is completely custom.
