Set snapdrive RDM location via registry key


Hi there I have a question about snapdrive (6.4.2).

We are stuck with this version as it is on a 2003 server, when we add an RDM to a virtual machine and choose store with virtual machine there is a bug where it just adds it to 1st datastore it sees which in our case is the local storage on the esx server.

I remember that a pssible workaround to this is was to add a registry keyy into sanapdrive which states the datastore where all RDM's should be saved to this is more useful in  an NFS environment but could help us with this bug.

Does anyone happen to know the details of this registry fix?



Did some digging and the answer is here
