I know its possible to do this because at the place I worked before the Sql DBA and I worked to stand up what we called the verification box. Basically this was a sql server system that ran integrity checks on the databases by cloning the snapshot, attaching it to the server and then running the Sql checks that the DBA wanted run. The whole process was automated.
I will see what I can do to recreate from scratch that code and setup instructions.
But I must tell you up front I can't promise I will be able to provide this, or that it will be done quickly.
Hi Amado, this is a very common use case with our zero copy clone -- i presume you already know how to do this manually (if not, let me know)...automating this now requires you to ssh to the nimble and execute CLI commands via your own script. We are planning to introduce northbound API for our storage platform next year, so you could invoke SOAP api calls for full automation.
