You can create a snapshot of a virtual machine. A snapshot saves the state of the virtual machine and allows you to revert the virtual machine to that state later.

You can have only one snapshot of a virtual machine at a time. When you create a snapshot, it overwrites the previous snapshot, if any.


Display the virtual machine.


In the vCloud Hybrid Service Home page, click Cloud Instances and double-click the cloud instance that contains the virtual machine.


In the Related Objects tab, click the Virtual Machines tab.

All virtual machines in the cloud instance are displayed.

You can customize your view by setting filters and hiding or selecting columns.


Double-click the virtual machine.


From the Actions menu, select Create Snapshot.
