We are about to start the process of upgrading our Vsphere 4.1 farm up to Vsphere 5. In our current setup with have SMVI 2 running. It seems that I need to uninstall SMVI 2.0 before I can install Virtual Storage Console 4.0. My question is regarding the process of removing SMVI, what will happen to the snapshots that SMVI has created? Will they be removed or left behind on the Netapp? Will VSC be aware of the snapshots created by SMVI?
If anyone has information around this, or can point to the relevant doco, that would be great.
