Hello Everyone,

I have snapmanager for sql with Server 2008 R2 on a production virtual server and ona test virtual server.  I want to restore the a sql database from the production to the test server.  Which is the best option??  Should I do a restore to the test server or should I clone it to the test server?

Thanks,

Cloning the database is faster than restoring from a backup. It will also take much less space on your storage system.
