I have a Windows 2008 R2 64bit server running SQL Server 2008 64bit.
I installed SnapDrive 6.2 x64, SnapManager SMSQL5.0R1P2_x64 and the latest host utilities (netapp_windows_host_utilities_5.2_x64).
The LUN & vol setup is exactly the same as my other "non 64bit" SQL servers i.e. I have 4 LUNs:
Backing up the databases works fine, but if I attempt a verify or restore it fails whilst attempting to mount the snapshot LUN. I've tried various fixes including re-creating new vols and using SnapManager to re-create all the LUNs, the migrating all the stuff to these new LUNs. I've also re-installed the host utils/snapdrive/snapmanager etc. Still the problems persist.
Also i cannot find that Windows Server 2008 R2 supported in SnapManager for SQL.

Great! But where can I find the download on NOW? I can still only see the "SnapDrive6.2_x64.exe".
I believe the "P" releases are only available on request? (I had the same problem with SMSQL - we use "SMSQL5.0R1P2_x64.exe" but only the non P2 version is on the NOW site for download (someone else kindly posted the P2 link. Why NetApp don't publish the P releases on NOW I have no idea....maybe one of the techs can answer this because its sure annoying to think you're using the latest version, then spend hours fixing it only to find out that there is a newer version available!).
This sounds like the bug we are facing though and I need to get a copy of SnapDrive 6.2P1 to see if it helps!
Well, I guess my NOW software site isn't quite working the same as yours because a the bottom of the form I get a useful little drop-down list filled with old version of products (snapdrive 3 etc) - and no matter what I search for I cannot find 6.2SP1!
So thanks for sending me the link!
The guys on this forum are golden. I've been banging my head for ages on this!
I am installing the SP1 now and will let you know if it works.
