Revert to a Snapshot


XenCenter 2023.x.x is currently in preview and is not supported for production use. Note that any future references to production support apply only when XenCenter 2023.x.x and XenServer 8 go from preview status to general availability.

You can use XenCenter 2023.x.x to manage your XenServer 8 and Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 non-production environments. However, to manage your Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 production environment, use XenCenter 8.2.7. For more information, see the XenCenter 8.2.7 documentation.

You can install XenCenter 8.2.7 and XenCenter 2023.x.x on the same system. Installing XenCenter 2023.x.x does not overwrite your XenCenter 8.2.7 installation.

Reverting to a snapshot restores the VM to the state it was in at the point in time when you created the snapshot. All changes made to the VM since the snapshot was taken are discarded. The current state of the VM is lost.

The Revert to Snapshot dialog box includes an option to take a snapshot of the current VM state before you revert to the earlier snapshot. This option allows you to easily restore the VM to its current state again if you need to.

  1. On the Snapshots tab, select the snapshot and select Revert To.

    If the snapshot you want to revert to is a scheduled snapshot, make scheduled snapshots visible on the Snapshots tab before you can select it. To make these snapshots visible, select View > Scheduled Snapshots.

  2. To take a new snapshot of the current state of the VM before reverting it back to the earlier snapshot, select the check box.
  3. Select Yes.
