Exlude disks from Snapshot using Rubrik

I want to exclude some disks from my snapshot, using Rubrik on my Nutanix VM.

I use the script from rubrik (which is a Patch) to exclude some disks from my nutanix vm like this:

{
"excludeDiskIds": [
"diskid1",
"diskid2"
]
}

I get these disks id from the nutanix API (which is a get), but when I snapshot the machine from Rubrik the disks are still included.


Am I doing something wrong? Is the "Nutanix Disk ID" equal to the one requested from the Rubrik script? 
Thank you

In the Nutanix API for snapshot creation, I do not see any option to ignore/omit virtual machine disks from the snapshot. The VM itself is the most granular object targeted by the Nutanix snapshot. 
If you are looking to exclude disks from replication from this Nutanix snapshot to secondary storage by Rubrik I would have to suggest asking Rubrik support as I did not find any answers from their site. 

hello Jeremy.
I asked Rubrik support. The said to me that with my AOS version of Nutanix, i’m not able to do correctly the snapshot, and they said to me that I have to upgrade the AOS to the 5.11.2 version. Thank you!

Right now , I  can’t upgrade to the latest AOS version, so I didn’t try it yet.
