SRM with EMC Clariion & Mirrorview: Is EMC Snapview needed?

Hi,

I am new to SRM and trying to understand the setup of an SRM installation with EMC storage. I found the setup guide for SRM with EMC CX and Mirrorview at the viops.vmware.com - site. This document talks about the setup of Mirrorview and Snapview for the use with SRM.

Is the SnapView SW for the CXs mandatory needed? As I understand, SRM needs the snapshots for the test scenarios. Are they being used for other tasks (failover,...)?

Thanks for your replies.

you need them for testing failover. as testing is one of the biggest advantages in SRM, not only for testing failover but also for testing failback then i would advise you use them if you can.

cheers
