Our backups of VMs seem to complete successfully, the snapshots are created and deleted completed according to the NBU logs, but our monitoring tool indicates that some snapshot data is being left behind.

Description: Finds VMSN files on the datastore that aren't listed in a Virtual Machine's snapshots

Time Executed: Tue, 11 Nov 2014 20:25:13

Current Overall Alert State: ACTIVE

Alert Active for:
1. Datastore: datastore and vmdk info.
