This weekend we migrated our VMware environment over to New NETAPP Filers 3240 in Cluster mode. We are now trying to configure SNAP Manager from Exchange but this morning when I came in I received the following error:
05:03:14.818] Adding volume containing L:\ ...
[05:03:18.053] Successfully add volumes to snapshot set.
[05:03:18.053] Adding volume containing C:\ ...
[05:03:18.068] Error in calling VSS API: Error code = 0x8004230e
Error description: VSS_E_VOLUME_NOT_SUPPORTED_BY_PROVIDER
We are running Exchange 2003 SP2, SNAPDRIVE 5.1 and SNAPMANAGER 6.0.2. Over FCP
Our Exchange server is hosted on VMware and this is the layout for the Exchange Server:
C:\ - VMFS
D:\ - VMFS
L:\ - RDM with the Exchange logs
N:\ - RDM Snap info lun
V:\ - RDM EXCHANGE DB
I have seen a posted stating that SnapManager for Exchange on VMFS is not supported. However as you can see I have the DB and the Logs on RDM's?
is there any reason why I can getting these errors. Any help would be great.

I managed to resolve this issue myself in the end. It was due to the Tracking logs and mddata area sitting on local c:\ I moved these to the same area as Exchange logs on the netapp and hey presto, everything worked.
Hope this helps someone out there!!
