Clone Luns for a Test Environment.


I have a VM that is made up of 10 luns on my Nimble, the VM is running in ESXI 5.5 and has SQL Server 2012 running on the Guest. 

I need to make a test envirment with this server, and I want to see if I can leverage snaps and clones to make that so. 

Any help would be appreicated.

Re: Clone Luns for a Test Environment.

I'm interested in this as well. I'm particularly curious how 10 LUNs with potentially different snap schedules can be cloned and utilized to produce a clone of the SQL Server in a consistant state, I would be very concerned about things not matching up.
