CG Consistency Group snapshots with Plug-in for VMware

Hi,

We have a requirement to protect an application with several VM’s spanning across several Datastores. There are 14 Datastores, each with one 1 Volume/FC LUN.

I know that some Plug-ins have an option to take snapshots in a Consistency Group to ensure the consistency of the snapshots across the volumes. However there are no Plug-ins for this application.

I am adding all the Datastores to the same Resource Group in the vSphere Plug-in, but I don't think this is guaranteeing that the snapshots will be taken as a consistent group.

Any ideas on how to achieve this?

Thanks
