During the intellisnap process;
1-VSA communicates with the hypervisor;
2-Hypervisor communicates with the VMs to quiesce the disks
3-Hypervisor (vmware / hyper-v) etc initiate the software snapshots
4-MA then takes hardware based snapshots
5-Software snapshots are deleted
6- VMs are backed uo through hypervisor proxy.
My questions is related to step five on the deletion process.
- Does the MA sends the command so that the hypervisor can creates the snaps? If so, I would assume that is based on the type of CV client?
- Where can I have a reference for some of these background commands sent by the MAs?
- How does the hypervisor knows that it has to delete the software based snaps?
