we have customer with SAP Installation based on DB2 which on Netapp NFS Storage.

We would like to use Intellisnap Snapshot function with DB2 and NFS Volumes.

If I check the Intellisnap Matrix :

Intellisnap is not supported with NFS & DB2.

Is this still correct - because in general it is supported why not with NFS or is there any newer information which I missed.

Thanks for a short update here.

Thx & BR

Thanks for your reply. So for me the link you shared shows that DB2 Agent is supported with Netapp Intellisnap. Then it should work because it is not mentioned if on LUN or NFS.

Is it possible to clarify this internally? If not supported I would be happy to see a CMR for that.

Thanks for an update.
