Snapshot Mount Operation Using pRDM
With the physical raw device mapping (pRDM) mount operation, you can mount snapshots directly on VMs that do not have dedicated Fibre Channel (FC) adapters, without using a physical computer as a mount proxy computer.
As part of pRDM mount operations, the snapshot is mapped on the ESXi host, and then made available on the VM’.
You can use the pRDM mount operation on the following storage arrays:
- Hitachi Vantara
You can use the pRDM mount operation on the following snapshot agents:
- File system agents
- Microsoft SQL Server Agent
- Oracle Agent
Note: You cannot use the VMs that are created on the NFS datastore for pRDM.
