    Default VSS provider in DSS?

    Hi,

    Are there any plans to implement a VSS provider in the DSS product for NAS and iSCSI in Windows environments?

    My goals are twofold:

    1) To allow users to use the Shadow Copy client to access snaps (as they do with my NTAP filers).

    2) To allow me to back up exchange (on iSCSI) using the VSS provider to create snapshots before backing up.

    Any information you have on either of these features would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Tony.

    To be honest this is the first request I had on this subject. The only problem is we will need more people asking for this before our R&D will enter it in for review. I will ask them as I like this idea, but could take some time. Thanks!
    All the best,

    It is a very nice feature and every customer where i install this on his Windows 2003 server, or activated it on a CIFS Share on a NetApp Filer, can't believe that this isn't build in/activated per default.

    On a NetWare File-Server users see all the time only on what they had the rights....

    Just wanted to update you that we have placed this feature into our pending list as we feel it should be quite simple to implement.

    Hi Tom,

    Any news on VSS Provider or Access based enumeration support? I don't see it in the latest update (upd44 build 3025)...

    Thanks,
    Tony.

    Sorry Tony but developers fell behind and have delayed this feature - too much demand for Auto Failover and other functions that the market is driving. I donít know when this will start up again for development.
    All the best,

    Default VSS provider

    Hello, To-M!

    Any improvement in the subject?

    For us it is very important question. We are use Open-E DSS and plan to migrate
    most of our file-services to the NAS, but VSS feature is important for our users and today we could not cancel Windows based storages...

    Thank you for any information.
