In our company due to bad practices, some application integrators was using vmware snapshot before doing applications deployments on legacy part (no more needed with openshift). Obviously they often forgot to remove snapshot or maintain snapshot cauz they’re waiting answer from project team.
We replaced this hijacked habit and provide to integrator/devops the possibility to launch quickbackup in the first time. It was not enough for stagging part and we had to provide capability to create veeam zip with one year retention (yes i know it’s bad...) . We did awx roles for this too because they wre missing the vmware snapshot comment…
I’m curious to hear if other people have encountered a similar situation :)

Are people still seeing frequent orphaned snapshots after upgrading to vSphere 6.x that has a new snapshot engine?
Sorry, to answer your question: With current version in 6.x commiting snapshots work quite well. Currently there are issuse when deleting snapshots in vSphere 7.0 U1. CBT can make troubles there on certain servers.
