Setting the SnapInfo directory path

You can control SnapInfo directory path settings by using the Configuration wizard or the SnapInfo settings action.

About this task

SnapInfo directory settings are specified on the host level in SnapManager for Hyper-V. SnapManager 2.0 for Hyper-V supports NAS (SMB) hosts and SAN hosts. For SAN hosts, the SnapInfo settings are applied on the volume level; for NAS hosts, the SnapInfo settings are applied on the SMB share level.

NAS host support is a new feature in SnapManager 2.0 for Hyper-V.
