I'm facing an environment build on Vmware virtualization.
within the Vmware Farm, there are VMs running DB2 databases on RDMs (mapped via FC to the server)
I asume, that this is a supported configuration for running IntelliSnap Backups.
I'll have a physical host to handle the backup copy (hope that's an option).
But what about Restores ?
How is Restore processed in such an environment ? didn't find much to help me on BOL.
since snapshot backups will be created on a 4hrly schedule, but backup copy only once a day, I might end up in restoring from snapshot + replay of logs.
If snap revert is not an option like w/ DB2 multinode, do I have to mount the snapshots to the Proxy used for the backup copy ?
(I asume, that CV is not able to mount the Snapshot into the VM via RDM)
Will the data than be send to the DB host via LAN ?
Is this asumed to be faster, then restore from Disk + Log Replay ?
(since the amount of logs to replay might be significantly smaller)
any hints welcome
