    no

     

    Use Veritas Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP)

    This option specifies that VeritasVSP be used as the snapshot provider. VSP is required

    for Windows 2000 clients and can also be used on 6.x Windows 2003 clients.

    Use Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS)

    This option specifies that Microsoft VSS be used to create volume snapshots of volumes

    and logical drives for the selected clients.

    In 7.0, Microsoft VSS should be selected for all Windows clients, as VSP is not available.

    VSS is available for all supported Windows clients, XP SP2 and later.
