    Which choice of volume collection sync for a windows file server?

    Scott Baldridge Newbie

      I have a vSphere 5.1 Windows 2008 vm.  The O/S drive is a VMFS but it has two data drives which connect to a cs240 via iSCSI in the guest O/S.  In the cs240 array there are three volumes.

       

      I need a sanity check on the best method to configure the volume collection.  I'd like to snapshot all three volumes at the same time and the synchronization options are none, vSphere, and MS VSS.  There are no applications installed on the Windows server.  Is my best choice "none"?  Perhaps I should choose "vSphere" since the o/s volume is a vSphere datastore, although the other two volumes are not?

       

      Thanks for the help
