Re: SAN snapshot & NSS volumes

Sebastian,
Just a couple of questions -
1. Are you using the ESXi5 Snapshot feature?
2. Or the Novell SnapShot feature?
Depending on which is used - one is easier than the other of course – least likely to cause issue or problems is the Novell SnapShots – you can dismount a Volume and use the Snapshot to test and or troubleshoot issue with NSS, eDirectory and other Object associated with the Volume. - - - Let’s say you want to try out another component of NetWare (say NetStorage) – you create a “Snap” of the Volume/Pool take the original offline nad mount your “Snap” to test/use with – if anything goes wrong or you don’t like the functionality of NetStorage – simply dismount the “Snap” and mount the original Volume. The caveat to this is if any Files or creation of them were change by other Users, those changes would not be reflected in the original Volume being mounted back. - - please try this in a test environment and become comfortable with it before exercising it in a production one

None of the above, I was considering SAN native snapshot

Re: SAN snapshot & NSS volumes

Massimo,

What about an OES11 Cluster. If I take a SAN snap of VolumeA and it is running on ServerA in the cluster, can I mount the snap to another server in the cluster? Or will it still be a problem because of the cluster?
