How to detect if CBT (Change Block Tracking) It is enabled on a virtual server started?

As you know, to enable or disable CBT is necessary to have the virtual machine off, but to see if a server has CBT enabled? as I do if the CBT configuration screen is disabled as you can see below.

CBT enable

Well it's simple, you will have access only to Datastore Browser and check that there is a -ctk.vmdk for each virtual disk assigned to the virtual server file.

Then I show an image of a server that is not configured Change Block Tracking.

CBT Enabled

As you can see in the picture above there is a -ctk.vmdk file for each virtual disk snapshots and if we also would be a -ctk.vmdk for each snapshot.

I hope you have been helpful.

Greetings and see you soon.
