My customer is trying to use SMVI to backup a VMWare volume which hosts an SQL Server, if a vmware snapshot is executed, there are not problems, but when SMVI is used the various SQL Server client systems disconnect and timeout.. is this expected behavior? Can SMVI be used to non-disruptively backup SQL Server in a vmware environment? what causes the difference in client behavior between SMVI and a plain old vmware snapshot?

Re: using SMVI instead of SMSQL to backup SQL Server - will clients disconnect from SQL server?
