Re: MSA2000 mount snapshot

In the advanced setting of the ESX server you will need to set the LVM.DisallowSnapshotLun parameter to 0. You will then need to rescan the HBAs. Once the LUN is visible you can do what you want with it.

Re: MSA2000 mount snapshot

In that case, the original datastore MUST NOT BE accessible - otherwise you risk data corruption. If you need concurrent access, you need to 'resignature' the snapshot VMFS.

The mechanisms HAVE CHANGED from ESX3 to V4 - see:
http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1011387

** PLEASE ** PLEASE ** PLEASE **

Do make yourself familiar with this topic. Go and read the VMware description -- DO NOT blindly attempt to resignature or force-mount a volume!!

Re: MSA2000 mount snapshot

Hello all!
I can not find LVM.DisallowSnapshotLun key in advanced options (screen attached). ESX 4 may be LVM.DisallowSnapshotLun there is only on ESX 3.0?
