As stated in the title, I've setup a 54Mb test LUN to map to a Windows 2003 platform as a RAW volume/device. I did that from MMC (initialized, no drive letter assigned, not formated) as SnapDrive usually formats it to NTFS by default...
Anway, I wanted to see whether SnapDrive 5.0.1 could still perform SnapShot creation on it, as it could be used as a storage option for Oracle RAC, but I got an error saying:
Unable to create snapshot of a virtual disk.
Failure in checking policies.
Error: Snapshot creation of virtual disks cannot occur at this time. This situation can be caused by the virtual disk being offline, ot this disk has a VLD type, or not owned by this computer.
Here's a screenshot, click on it to see it in full:
I haven't much experience with this type of management. Any thoughts on how to fix or work around this issue?
