    VMware and OES NSS drive question


    Since this more of a Vmware related question, I thought I would post
    this here since its not really an issue with OES.

    I am running my OES server on VMware 5.0 and was wondering how the
    VMware Snapshot works with my OES NSS drives. Since I was going to
    patch my SLES/OES 11 server I took a snapshot before doing the patch. I
    ran into minor issues and was waiting back from the OES forum for some
    information on the issue. Meanwhile a fellow employee came in to do
    some work on a project located on the NSS drives.

    If I needed to revert back to the previous snapshot would that have
    erased the work he had done?

    I posted this questions on the VMware site but no one has replied.

    Just wondering,
    Ken

    Hi Ken,

    yes it would revert any changes if the drive was on a VMDK and not a
    direct attached disk from your SAN.

    If the disk was in fact a VMDK and you took a snapshot it would have
    captured the changes to the disks.

    Then if you removed the snapshot you would remove all changes since that
    snapshot.

    I hope that answers your question
    Lance
