Hi,

Where does SMVI 2.0 store the snapshot when making a backup?

Will I have enought space to hold the snapshot?

Example: An iSCSI VMDK datastore 300GB total space with 5 VMs. 70GB of free space. Each VM is around 10GB of disk space.

nleo, a snapshot will ALWAYS be helt in the NetApp FlexVol containing your data, so make sure to have the space available on the volume level. For more infos check the SAN configuration manual about space settings.
