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.

After the pRDM mount operation mounts the snapshot on the ESXi host, the snapshot is available on the VM.

You can use the pRDM mount operation on the following storage arrays:

  • Hitachi Vantara
  • INFINIDAT

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.
