How come when I clone a database with SMSQL, those cloned databases are greyed out in the SnapManager GUI? This means I can't create snapshots or reclone these databases into another development environment.
When I create the clones using the ONTAP commands on the filer, then mount the cloned LUNS as disks via SnapDrive, then attach the databases in SQL I can use the clones as "real" databases with the GUI. This requires a lot of extra work and could be difficult to automate. I really need to take snapshot backups of our clones for testing our database deployments in our testing environment. I also really need to be able to Clone a Cloned database as well.
