This is the second in a series of posts on what’s new in VSS in Windows Server 2008. In this article I’ll cover some of the new scenarios with hardware shadow copies and also requirements from storage arrays. This is a primarily an overview and you can find more details in the documentation on MSDN and the SDK.
In addition to the scenarios discussed above there are several enhancements to make the shadow copy creation and import process more robust. These do not require any changes from requesters or providers. Note that existing Server 2003 hardware providers should work on Server 2008 albeit without any of the new functionality.
