We have recently upgraded to vROps version 7.0 from 6.6.1. Now ican see two policies with the same name 'vSphere Solution's Default Policy'. which one I should amend :

vSphere Solution's Default Policy (10/02/16 4:39 PM)
vSphere Solution's Default Policy (Dec 08, 2016 2:53:19 PM) - It has a child custom policy.

Hi GBrandon,

Thanks for report i am looking for this from last 3 year.

I see small bug here [Snapshot details - view List ] . eg. VM abc have no active snapshot but in report it show 5 snapshot details which we taken in past and already deleted. is there any way to fetch only Live/Active snapshot details here and exclude unwanted steal entry.
