i am trying to clone a database that is running in sql 2008r2
Snap manager is the latest version. does anybody know if snap manager is able to clone a database that is configured for replication. I have cloned other databses on other servers but this seems to be the only difference and the clone keeps failing.
is this configuration supported?

Hi and welcome to the Community!
I don't think this could make any difference whether the source is replicated, or not. Are we talking about SnapMirror replication, right?
In theory you should be able to clone either off the primary, or the secondary volume.
What's the SMSQL version & the actual error you are getting?

this is now resolved. someone had enaled shadow copies on the drive and set the limit to unlimited. this was smashing the free space.l.... deleted these and all good again. thanks for you help
