Last Updated:

Applies to

  • SnapCenter Plug-in for Windows (SCW) 4.x
  • Third party VSS Backup Tool (Veeam)


Although the snapshot works fine on volumes containing the Hyper-V CSV LUNs, when mounting the Snapshot to read the content, a failure occurs, as seen in the Application Event log:
Navssprv event of type "unknown", id 4103: "NETAPP LUN C-Mode  <LUN-serial-number>"
VSS error event 12362:
