Description

Snapshots are a great feature for virtual machines, but leaving them open for a long time is unwanted for a number of reasons.

Alan has written a script here that checks your hosts for virtual machines which have open snapshots for more as 2 weeks. The scripts then finds out who created them and as extra bonus even automatically sends the offender an email based on the email address in their Active Directory subscription.
