yes, it does. Refer SnapManager 3.0 for SAP Installation and Administration Guide
A FlexClone license is required to take full advantage of SnapManager with NFS databases. SnapManager uses the FlexClone feature to accomplish these tasks: • Mount backups of NFS databases • Verify backups of NFS databases • Clone NFS databases on page 264. Refer page 37 shows FCP, iSCSI, NFS protocols as supported.
