Yes, currently if user tries to do such operations then they will be informed that they cannot
perform that operation.

Is there currently any mechanism in place to prevent users from trying to
take VM snapshots and volume snapshots at the same time? For example, is
there a check in place in the relevant APIs that throws an exception if you
try to get yourself in this situation?

Because there were observed issues which are leading to VM corruption if
both type of snapshots are allowed to exist together.
I will be fixing issues to make sure VM corruption do not happen.
