The first step to adding a RDM to a virtual machine is to assign an unused LUN to your ESXi Servers. Go to the Computer Management and then go to Disk Management. have a peek here

SMVI also gives users the option to disable VMware snapshots and just take a NetApp Snapshot copy on the volume underlying the datastore. Re: Adding disks using Netapp Snapdrive WillFulmer Jul 28, 2008 9:47 AM (in response to AndrewSt) Any luck with this problem?

RDMs are not supported on NFS stored machines Like Show 0 Likes (0) Actions 3. Datastore backup – A VMware snapshot will be created for every virtual machine that is powered on within the datastore that has been selected for backup. Like Show 0 Likes (0) Actions 10. I'd be interested to see if you get that scenario to work.Also requires, BusLogic Drive, NIC to be e1000 and RDM to be in physical mode.

Information on application consistency is provided in section 9 of this document. Running slpd restart Error running operation: Error interacting with configuration file /etc/vmware/esx.conf: Failed attempting to lock file. This article talks about it in depth, SnapManager® 6.0 for Microsoft® Exchange Installation and Administration Guide. Upon completion of the local backup, SnapManager for Virtual Infrastructure updates an existing SnapMirror relationship on the volume underlying the datastore if the SnapMirror option was selected.

So we would mount the Snapshot LUN from the NetApp Filer to the same Exchange Server and perform the verification (which is apparently not recommended, because it’s so resource intensive). Click Next. 6.

From that KB Updates the NMP module to add support to the PREEMPT_AND_ABORT service action in the PERSISTENT RESERVE OUT SCSI command for passthrough RDMs, which is required by the Symantec Re: Adding disks using Netapp Snapdrive smsit Dec 29, 2008 10:27 PM (in response to AndrewSt) I had the same situation. UPDATE: After applying the above patch the issue was not fixed, but it shed more light to the issue. This is likely a temporary condition.

The RDM must be located on a seperate SCSI controller. http://justjoomla.net/failed-to/failed-to-register-xen-virtual-console-driver.html There are two RDM modes to be aware of: Virtual compatability mode provides vSphere snapshots of this virtual disk. Whilst the information provided is correct to the best of my knowledge, I am not reponsible for any issues that may arise using this information, and you do so at your The application SnapManager products support backup and recovery of applications whose data is stored on RDM LUNs or Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator LUNs mapped to the virtual machine.

The only way how I did get to work the configuration, I'll describe it below.My config:ESX 3.5 Update 2VC 2.5Windows Server 2003 SP2 R2 x64 (English), Exchange 2007 Netapp FAS3070Snapdrive 6.0.11. blog comments powered by Disqus Follow @virtuallyhyper Want to support us? Run SnapDrive on your Windows-based hosts in either a physical or virtual environment and integrate it with your Microsoft Cluster Server and Windows failover clustering Here is main page of SnapDrive, Check This Out This allows it to leverage SAN specific features such as interation with the SANs own snapshot functions. 9.

Regardless of backup type, virtual machines that are powered off during a backup will be backed up; however no VMware snapshot is required. Re: Adding disks using Netapp Snapdrive WillFulmer Dec 18, 2008 8:08 AM (in response to smsit) So you are saying that you have a VM stored on NFS, using SnapDrive6 and I got another log bundle and I saw the following in the logs: Apr 7 17:37:45 esx_host vmkernel: 17:19:49:38.441 cpu6:53888)UserDump: 1587: Userworld coredump complete.

I understand that the Raw Device Map file has to reside in a VMFS volume. Another process has locked the file for more than 20 seconds. Checking the host for compliance shows which parts of the configuration failed to apply, and perform an Apply operation to fix those remaining non-compliance issues. In our setup we didn’t have remote verification, we just did local verification, again from the same article: Remote verification is performed using the same mechanisms that are used for local

This snapshot is maintained so it can be used by the restore process to revert the virtual machine to its point-in-time state. Re: Adding disks using Netapp Snapdrive WillFulmer Oct 14, 2008 5:09 PM (in response to bmarquez) Not sure. There is a mis-understanding that RDMs offer greater performance compared to VMDK's on a VMFS datastore. this contact form Can't have the VM stored on NFS.

Install Snap drive with all necessary Fixes. (Windows Fixes, Network Card Driver, LSI Logic Driver)3. You can automate complex, manual, and time-consuming processes associated with the backup, recovery, and verification of Exchange Server databases while reducing messaging storage costs, improving manageability, and increasing availability. Lastly, we have SnapManager for Exchange (SME). Like Show 0 Likes (0) Actions 4.

The Snapdrive and RDM issues seem to be fixed with the latest versions of all the products ;) The former seems to still come up and it depends on what your Open Snap Drive8. Installed SME on the VM and used option two (from above) to take an application consistent backup with SME (not  VMware VSS-assisted backups).

It is not possible to create a VMware snapshot of a VM that has a RDM in physical compatibility mode, so I have stopped going down that path.I will probably end Hello We did an upgrade from vSphere 4.1 to 5.0But after it, we have problems with SnapDriveUnable to map any existing RDM Lun into Windows 2003 R2 SP2 VMWe get This will vary depending on the type of SAN in use (consult the SAN vendors documentation on how to do this). 2. For the new LUN to become available, Rescan the HBAs on all your ESXi servers. 3.

However, SMVI uses VMware snapshots as part of the process of quiescing the VM. The remote verification server uses SnapDrive to connect to a LUN backed by a Snapshot copy containing the databases to be verified.
