    VSS snapshots on iSCSI Initiator volumes with both CHAP Authentication and Initiator Groups

    Alex Goltz Adventurer

      Does anyone know a possible timetable for allowing VSS snapshots on iSCSI volumes with CHAP Authentication "enabled" in conjunction with Initiator Groups?

          Short answer is yes, you can take VSS snapshots on volumes with CHAP enabled if you are using NWT (Nimble Windows Toolkit) 1.4.62.2 or above. There is one exception though - one specific configuration of Exchange -  if you are taking Exchange snapshots with the verify snapshots option on then CHAP cannot be enabled on those volumes. Otherwise you are good.

           

          Regarding timeline of supporting Exchange with verification option turned on with CHAP, can you please contact your local sales team? I cannot share future capabilities on a public forum.
