Hello and thanks in advance for your attention.
I am wondering if it is possible to present the snapshots created on a LUN to that server's previous versions tab? Similar to how it works in CIFS.
I have a VM hosted by ESX 4.1, with a VMDK on an iSCSI datastore. Is there any way I can present the snapshots as "Previous Versions"? I am not glued to iSCSI/VMFS, if this is possible with NFS I am open to suggestions. If this is possible in anyway I am interested.
I want to be able to share folders on this LUN and have specific users with access to restore. So I don't have to do it myself, or create a LUN just for shadow copies. Plus, MS is limited to 64 versions where Netapp can have 255.
