SMSQL 5.2 - SQL Server database on vmdk with Protection Manager integration

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

starting SMSQL 5.0 SQL Server databases are supportet on vmdk files within an nfs vmware environment.

Creating snapshots on primary system with SMSQL works like a charme but how can I integrate Protection Manager remote backup (SnapVault)?

The configuration wizard offers the precreated protection policy but when I choose the databases to protect an error message appears (This LUN is not loacted within a qtree).

Hey, that's correct because I haven't created a LUN, I'm using NFS datastores... The mount of the nfs datastore is locatet at qtree level (/vol/vol_nfs01/nfs01)

Environment:

- Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise SP2

- SQL Server 2005 Enterprise SP4

- SnapDrive 6.4

- SnapManager for SQL Server 5.2

- OnCommand 5.0

- Virtual Storage Console 2.1.2

Can me anyone give a hint how to configure this?

Michael

Hi Michael ,

Dataset integration with Protection Manager is not available for VMDK over NFS and VMFS datastore.
