Hyper-V CSV and pass tru disk snapshots/smart clone

 

For a SQL 2008 server setup I have choosen to add pass tru disks for better IO performance for the SQL2008 installation and data/log files. We are using W2008 R2 Cluster Services with Hyper-V VMs. The VM and VHD is placed on a big CSV volume for all the VM's and the pass tru disks are dedicated volumes on the P4300 SAN.

 

I cannot make snapshots from Hyper-V as it does not support pass tru disks. How can I use SanIQ to take snapshots or SmartClone in this setup? WIth one big CSV volume holding multiple individual VM VHDs and seperate pass tru disk volumes? 

 

TIA,
