When attempting major upgrades, a snapshot is a very convenient way to
recover should something go wrong. In my case I have two OES servers in
my tree. They are not part of a cluster. They are both VM running under

Scanning through this forum I see this question about eDirectory and
snapshots has come up only a few times. The general recommendation, and
probably the safest approach, is don't use snapshots.

Is there a safe way to take and restore a snapshot of an OES server? I
assume I should stop eDirectory before taking the snapshot?

If I anticipate having to restore a snapshot, is there any benefit to
doing both servers at the same time?

What "clean up" is needed after restoring?
