How to clone a DB to drive letters with SMSQL?

Hi,

When I clone a DB with SMSQL the cloned DB is mounted in C:\ drive:

C:\Program Files\NetApp\SnapManager for SQL Server\SnapMgrMountPoint\MPDisk003\

C:\Program Files\NetApp\SnapManager for SQL Server\SnapMgrMountPoint\MPDisk003\
Can I specify available drive letters to clone and mount the DB on destination server directly from SMSQL?
I didn't find anything useful on the "clone-database" and "clone-backup" command.
Thanks.

You may want to try "-UseMountPoint $false" in the cmdlet. If that does not work currently, you may try to change to option "automatically assign available drive letter" under backup verification setting "mount point" tab.

Thanks,
