Vnxe 3200 and vss hw provider FC

Hi,

Is there a VSS hardware provider for an EMC VNXe3200, that is compatible with fibre channel LUNs ? We want to know if off-host proxy is possible with this combination / real world experience.

Thanks !

Hmm... do you already use this storage in production? The reason I'm asking is that hardware VSS provider should be installed on the production host connected to this storage too.

P.S. btw, quick google search returned me this whitepaper > http://www.emc.com/collateral/white-pap ... ots-wp.pdf

Now we find it is supported, we are struggling finding the right VSS hardware provider. Would be nice if someone has already experienced a working hardware vss provider in this combination :)

Just out of curiosity, how many providers you're choosing from? The required software should be shipped together with all the drivers for this storage.

What's the error message? Does this VSS provider fail for the on-host proxy as well?
