I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to revert a virtual machine to the previous snapshot every day/night. Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to do what I want. This is what I tried so far:
- snapshot.action=autoRevert --> The VM has to HALT, REBOOT doesn't work the same. I don't want to power on my VM manually.

- snapshot.action=autoRevert on a running snapshot. I tried this, thinking it might work and resolve the first issue. But when i HALT my VM, the snapshot is reverted but the VM is placed in a suspended state...

- PowerCLI script : I don't want to have a Windows machine running just for this little thing.

- NonPersistent disk : same thing as the first issue : VM needs to HALT, not REBOOT.
What should I do?
