For most of my vm’s that are in protection domains, the snapshot option is grayed out in Prism Centeral. Hovering over the option I get a popup with message “One or more of selected VMs is protected via legacy DR feature. Snapshots for these VMs can be taken from respective PE clusters only.” This option is not grayed out for vms that are not in protection domains. Why is that? What are legacy DR features?

Here is the content of the KB. Let me know if this helps.
This issue can be found when a customer is using Prism Central to connect Xi-Leap or Leap PC-PC, and is attempting to protect or take a snapshot of a VM from Prism Central when the VM is already protected by a legacy DR (Async).
When attempting to take the snapshot of the VM from PC, the "snapshot" option will be greyed out and a message will be displayed saying "One of more of the selected VMs are protected via Legacy DR".
This is an expected behavior as Nutanix Engineering do not want to mix up the PC workflows with those of PE. In future releases of PC, the error message displayed will be more descriptive to what the corrective actions are with respect to the issue.
If customer wants to move from Legacy DR and start using the Leap (PC) workflows, they will need to first come out of legacy workflow and from that point, start using PC-based workflows.
