SnapManager Exchange 2016 reFS

Hi,

 

 

we're going to setup a new Exchange 2016 Server and I wonder if the SME 7.2 does support ReFS formatted LUNs because MS recommends this for Exchange.

 

 

Thank you

Marius

Hi

 

The ReFS supportability is not strictly related to SnapManager but to SnapDrive instead.

 

Thare are some limitation and ReFS is not yes officially supported i think

For example Snapdrive for Windows is unable to resize a LUN that contains a Disk formatted with the Microsoft WIndows Reslient File System

Thank you matte, you're right.

 

 

Helpdesk said me that there was some performance issues with ReFS as well.

 

Anyway, it is supported (in Host San Matrix) but not if Snapdrive is used (but I did'n find a place where it is written: no alert in snapdrive matrix, nothing in release notes either).
