SnapDrive 6.1.1 mount LUN in snapshot as shared LUN

According to the release notes, SDW 6.1.1 has support for connecting LUNs in a FlexClone volume as shared LUNs when they are part of a Microsoft cluster.

I would like to connect to a LUN in a snapshot on a SnapMirror destination licensed with flexclone so that I can non-disruptively test some DR procedures.

When I try to do this, with the Connect Disk wizard, SDW only allows me to connect as a dedicated disk. Is there anything else that I need to do?

Thanks,
Mark

Re: SnapDrive 6.1.1 mount LUN in snapshot as shared LUN

I don't think this will be possible, when you create a LUN for an MSCS cluster you are supplying meta data that tells the filer what the nodes in the cluster are and their respective paths, if you then try and connect then LUN's to a different cluster or server the paths for the LUN will not be the same. You could try and fudge it at the filer level change the parameters for the shared LUN to point to you test environment see if that works.
