Exchange 2003 / EVA 81000 Snapshot/Snapclone best practice

What's the best way to quiesce Exchange 2003 to ensure a healthy snapshot of the database when running a snapshot/snapclone against the LUN?

The VDS/VSS framework is used for this.

You can download the hardware providers here: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/vdsvsshard/index.html?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Install this software on your server, and then the Windows VDS/VSS (ie: windows snapshot) can make hardware snapshots on the EVA.

Windows snapshot knows to quiesce Exchange databases before the snapshot offurs and resume afterwards.

Good luck!
No matter where you go, there you are.
