  • Hi,

    It is not possible to disable this feature in Hyper-V but with VMM you can to that if users have access to Self-Service Portal not to VMM console.

    I hope this answer will help.

  • Hi,
     
    Why do you want to disable the snapshot feature? To prevent the mis-operation?
     
    By the way, in Hyper-V, it’s snapshot. In SCVMM, it called checkpoint.

  • Hi!

    By using only pass-through disks, snapshots will be unavailable for everyone.
