SQL Backups and VM Quiescing

Question asked by Bill Blair on Oct 6, 2014

IHAC with a SQL database on vmdk's.  Their OS drive is now on the same datastore as their DB and logs.  I noticed when a snapshot is called it quiesces the VM as well as the DB.  If the OS is moved off the DB datastore as BP tells us to do, when the snapshot is called for the volume containing the datastore with the DB only, will it only quiesce the DB and the VM?

 

Thanks,

Bill
