Diskshadow, VSS and Windows 2008


I am playing with transportable snapshots using diskshadow and the VSS provider for SAN/iQ.

The issue I have is that prior to importing to the remote machine, I have to manually assign the snapshot from the source server to the backup server either through the CMC or CLIQ.

Is this the intended functionality? I had assumed the import command would do the reassigning for me in the background.

That is how it works today. Future (probably 2010) version is supposed to automate that authentication as you mention.
