Creating an RDM
A LUN configured for physical compatibility mode can be cloned, made into a template or migrated using storage vMotion. True or False?
If False, Why?
False. The inability to take a native Vmware snapshot of a pRDM also means that features that depend on Vmware snapshots (the vStorage API’s for Data Protection, Vmware Data Recovery, and Storage vMotion) don’t work with pRDMs. With Physical compatibility mode a VM can access a LUN directly. This is generally used when the application inside VM wants to directly access LUN. However when using physical compatibility mode you lose the option to clone a VM, make it a template or migrate it if it involves copying the disk.
