    The Sun Storage 7000 VSS HW provider has been certified by Symantec NBU

    All,

    I wanted to let everyone know that the VSS HW snapshot provider for the SS7000 written by the AIE team here at Sun has just been certified by Symantec Netbackup. The SS7000 is now posted on the Symantec NBU Advanced clients HCL as a supported array for snapshot clients for use with Microsoft VSS HW snapshots.

    ftp://exftpp.symantec.com/pub/suppor...ver/279042.pdf

    For those of you not familiar with what VSS is please refer to the following URL (How Volume Shadow Copy Service Works: Data Recovery).

    In a nutshell having a VSS HW provider for MS environments allows backup applications send a request to the MS backup client telling it to issue a HW snapshot request to the underlying storage array providing the client's storage.

    This solution has been certified and approved for use with all NBU Advanced clients and client agents. ie. msExchange, msSQLServer, DB2, SAP and of course Oracle.

    PLEASE NOTE: This support will be available with the next application layer update.

    Cheers,

    Phil

    Were can this be obtained (downloaded)? I've been looking round the Oracle site with no luck... I want to see if it will help my backup my cluster shared volume (Hyper-V Cluster) using DPM 2010.

    Thanks
    Rob

    I've found the updates with no problems but still cannot find where I download the VSS provider, I have this old link from a PDF about how to set it up:

    PDF: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ar...kup-163729.pdf
    Software Link:https://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP...ctDetail-Start

    But it doesnt take me anywhere, and searching the Oracle site returned nothing..
