Is there any issues with VMware ESXi 5.x and SMVI backup/restore when having multiple NFS datastores of NetApp LUNs on the same NetApp Volume?

Hello All,

I'm trying to find out if there is any issues with VMware ESXi 5.x and SMVI backup/restore when the VMware NFS datastores are of NetApp LUNs on the same NetApp Volume. Any insights are much appreciated. Thank you!

I wouldn't say it's an "issue", but you'll end up with multiple clones if you try to do a restore, and it will take longer to complete.  Best practices on NetApp suggests that you create a single LUN per volume: http://media.netapp.com/documents/tr-3749.pdf
