Lefthand VSS Snapshots

Is there a reason I cannot change my scheduled snapshots to "Application Managed"? The option is greyed out.

I can choose this option when creating new snapshots/schedules. I'm running SAN/iQ 8.5 and the VSS providers are installed on the connected hosts.

If I recreate my schedules, will the retention settings affect the existing snapshots or will they need to be removed manually?

Finally, how does the Lefthand communicate to the VSS provider that a snapshot is starting/finished?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Lefthand VSS Snapshots

Once you have installed the Lefthand VSS then you also need to configure it. Have you done this? If not you will need to do that before the application snapshot option within the CMC will work.
if you have nothing useful to say, say nothing...
