i'm building out our SME backup solution for EX2010.
the mailbox servers are Hyper-v guests using FC Pass-though disks for the databases.
whenever i backup and verify a database it creates and mounts flexclone that remains after the backup and verification completes.
as you cannot remove mount points with snapdrive when using pass-through disks i have to offlline and delete the flexclones on the filer.
is this normal behavior? if i select 'choose a drive letter' in verification settings it does the same thing but assigns it a drive letter.
it is annoying because:
-it is creating busy snapshots
-there are flexclones all over the filer
-after trhe flexclones are removed on the filer, they disappear from within the VM but i have to go into hyper-v manager, into the settings of the VM and remove the mapping to the now 'unreachable' disk - otherwise the snap manager for hyper-v backup of the vm fails.
