Create a New VM From a Snapshot

You create a VM from a snapshot in the same way as you create a VM from a regular VM template, by using the New VM wizard.

To create a VM from a snapshot

  1. On the Snapshots tab, select the snapshot you want to use, then right-click and select New VM from Snapshot on the shortcut menu.

    The New VM wizard opens, with your snapshot pre-selected on the Templates page.

  2. Follow the steps in the New VM wizard to create the VM. For more information, see Creating a new VM.

To create a VM from an orphan snapshot

If the original VM used to create the snapshot has been deleted, you can select the snapshot and start the New VM wizard as follows:

  1. In the Resources pane, switch to Folder View.
  2. Select to expand the Types group and then expand the Snapshots group.
  3. Select the snapshot, then right-click and select New VM from Snapshot on the shortcut menu.
