Contributors Download PDF of this page
The SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft Windows is supported on VMware Windows guest. Before you use the Plug-in for Windows to perform provisioning and Snapshot copy management operations, you should be aware of some limitations.
Installing the Plug-in for Windows on a Microsoft cluster on virtual machines using ESXi credentials is not supported.
You should use your vCenter credentials when installing the Plug-in for Windows on clustered virtual machines.
All clustered nodes must use the same target ID (on the virtual SCSI adapter) for the same clustered disk.
When you create an RDM LUN outside of the Plug-in for Windows, you must restart the plug-in service to enable it to recognize the newly created disk.
You cannot use iSCSI and FC initiators at the same time on a VMware guest OS.
