That would be awesome if you do file level restore from 3PAR Recovery Manager Central. I did a quick glance at the documentation and I only see reference to VM restores from vvols. And if I'm reading it right, it looks like it would overwrite the existing VM which doesn't help too much for restoring files from a snapshot.
Have you used recovery manager for restoration purposes? I can spin it up in a lab but if you've tried it already I'd be interested in hearing your experience.
Hi Steve, at the moment Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots doesn't support direct access to storage snapshots taken from a VVOL. Here's another thread
with some considerations that might be useful.
Thanks for that foggy, there was some interesting information in that post. The ability to integrate with array replication was a huge step forward for vvols which is why I'm even thinking about it again. If we had the ability to somehow browse the contents of a vvol VM snasphot, we would almost be at feature parity with VMFS.
