    It would be useful to add some information about whether or not it is possible to continue working in an environment while a snapshot is being created.

    Hello Robert, great recommendation - and, it is.  Check out our  Blog about Live Snapshots.

    It would also be nice to see the date/time and comment about your last snapshot when you're created.

    Hi Bruce, agreed - and it's there too.  Just hidden ;-)

    What happens if after taking the snapshots, I delete the machines with some new ones.  Will the snapshot restore my old machines and the state the environment was in when the snapshot was taken?

    Hi Rohan, yep - that's exactly what will happen.

    It would be great to be able to take a snapshot and publish to a new blueprint without having to launch the environment

    Excellent idea and it's one we just put into action in our last release for TeamLabs and Enterprise customers.  

    You can now take a snapshot of an active but suspended environment so it does not need to be running and consuming resources when you need to update your Blueprints.

    I have ProPlus, and this notes that, "In ProPlus, only one Snapshot slot is available.  So as a part of your environment you will have your Snapshot as a back-up and then the environment as it is in its current working state. "  I took my one snapshot months ago but now want to replace the old snapshot with a new one.  My "Take Snapshot" button is disabled with the popup text, "Please correct the machine(s) with correct users and credentials order to take snapshot."  

    In my ProPlus account, what are the steps I need to do to replace my old snapshot with a new one?  I've searched support but can't find anything.  Thanks!

    Hey Keith - very odd.  The 'misconfigured users' error typically happens if the Windows creds in our UI and on the VM do not match.  

    However this can also happen if the script we use to check that they match, can't run.  

    I had a look at your environment and one of your machines is only accessible via Console.  If you check that out, you'll see it's BSODing.  The reason for that is that you've lowered the RAM on it to 256mb.  Way too little for Windows to run.  Knock that up to at least 1GB and the BSOD should clear.  The 'misconfigured users' error will also clear and you'll be able to take a snapshot.  

    Cheers!
