3par VVOL unmanaged snapshot

Does 3par support function importUnmanagedSnapshot if yes how I can do this right ?

Because for this function needs uuid of lun which peresented to host and start with naa.xxxx(vv ww number).

But for presents to host vv needs to include to vvol sc vvset , if i tried add vv to Vvol vvset i have error that say

cannot add stantard vv to vvol vvset.


Describe of this function

Import an unmanaged-snapshot from Virtual-Volume(VVol) enabled Storage Array.

Storage Array may support users to take snapshots indepedent of VMware stack. Such copies or snapshots are known as 'Unmanaged-Snapshots'. We are providing an ability to end-users to import such unmanaged-snapshots as Virtual Disks.

End-user needs to know the VVol-Identifier to import unmanaged snapshot as VirtualDisk.

Once VirtualDisk is created, user can use 'Datastore Browser' to use with rest of Virtual Machine provisioning APIs
