      Description

      The VMware snapshot feature will no longer instruct VMware to create a app-consistent snapshot before the ZFS snapshot was taken, which I believe was the exact purpose of this feature.

       

      Specifically, in source code (https://github.com/freenas/freenas/blob/master/gui/tools/autosnap.py ) line 452-456

      Code:
                  VimTask.WaitForTask(vm.CreateSnapshot_Task(
                     name=vmsnapname,
                     description=vmsnapdescription,
                     memory=False, quiesce=False,
                   ))

      both have been set to false.
