P4000 with VMware and application managed SnapShot

Hello,

Can I create an application managed SnapShot on a VM under Windows with the VSS Provider, knowing that the Hypervisor is vSphere 4.1 ?

At present with SAN/iQ 9 the application managed snapshot is only relevant to a volume that is presented directly to the Windows machine using an iSCSI initiator. If your Windows VM has the application data in a vmdk then you will need to wait for the vCentre integration element, originally due to appear in SAN/iQ 9, but hoped for in the next release.
