Storagesnapshot on Netapp cDot

Who of you has a Netapp cDot system in use?

We migrated from 7-mode to cDot Ontap 9.1 and can only limited use the Storagesnapshot function.
Once a backup job has VMs of different LUNs or a VMs has multiple LUNs, only one Storagesnapshot is taken to the first LUN, and other Storagesnapshots fail with the message "Failed to create snapshot for LUN ...... ..... device busy ".
Now I could change our backup concept so that I create a job per LUN, which we do not want for different reasons. In addition, how do I backup an Exchangeserver with 5 DAGs distributed on 5 LUNs?
The case for this I opened 5 weeks ago. The Netapp support only sees that several snapshots requests parallel taken instead serially.

The Veeam support has as the only solution the conversion of the jobs and the recommendation my problem here in the forum to describe. With the statement, if even more report the problems have, they will be invest more time. :cry: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Has anyone similar problems?

Case #02201689
