I'm looking for the best configuaration to save our test vm, for patching purposes and other tasks.

VM configuration:

Windows Server 2008R2, SQL Server 2008R2.

Drive C: vmdk dependent - OS

Drive D: vmdk dependent - DB (no RDM)

Drive E: vmdk dependent - Files (no RDM)

Performance policy VMware ESX 5


I will be able to Clone or Snapshot Drives D and E.

I will be able to Backup only drive C with Veeam

I have created a Volume for Drive C, D, E and only this server.


What is the best practice to backup and save this VM.


Thanks for your help
