  • Hi, L. F.


    Is that what you're looking for?

    I took it from this page: http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/3cf204e6-709a-4eb8-8cbc-ad9655de91ba1033.mspx?mfr=true


    With the Volume Shadow Copy Service and a storage array with a hardware provider designed for use with the Volume Shadow Copy Service, it is possible to create a shadow copy of the source data volume on one server and then to import the shadow copy onto another server (or back to the same server). This process is accomplished in a few minutes, regardless of the size of the data. The transport process is accomplished through a series of steps using a shadow copy requestor (storage-management application) that supports transportable shadow copies. The following is a generalized version of those steps:


    Create a transportable shadow copy of the source data on a server.


    Import the shadow copy to a server connected to the SAN (you can import to a different server or the same server).


    The data is now ready to be used.
