Yeah, I checked out tr-3737 and the table on page 30 you refer to says "physical mode" RDMs. "Virtual Mode" RDMs (what I have) are a little different animal since VMware can take a snapshot of them -- and since that is the case, I figure why wouldn't it work with SMVI then? I searched tr-3737 for "virtual mode" and got 0 results..it seems to only reference physical mode.
What I'm aiming for here is "guest/file system level consistency"...not really application level. We are taking care of the SQL application backups via flat file dumps...so if I get the file system consistent, I've got what I need for this case.
Just for my knowledge and better understanding of the product/technology, why will virtual mode RDMs not work with SMVI? If VMware can take a snapshot of it, I thought SMVI would be ok then. The VM in question which has it does not have SDW installed.
Any plans to make virtual RDMs compatible in a future version? Sure would be nice
