This article specifically applies to a situation where the VM was created using a third-party VDI, fast-provisioning application, or PowerCLI with the –LinkedClone parameter.
Shortly after a backup or replication job runs, multiple Consolidate Snapshot operations are performed against the VM.
cloud.uuid = "001.00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"
Add the cloud.uuid parameter to each linked clone to cause Snapshot Hunter to not attempt to process that VM.
The cloud.uuid parameter will need to be added to each affected VM. If vCloud Director is not being used, the content of the cloud.uuid parameter does not matter. Snapshot Hunter only checks the VMX to see whether or not the parameter exists. You can add the parameter to a VM using a vSphere client, a PowerCLI script, or by editing the VMX file using the editor available in Veeam B&R’s Files view.
It is no longer advisable to disable Snapshot Hunter, as many improvements have been made to improve its stability.
