In order to get snapshots enabled on a SQL server VM, I need to change some INDEPENDENT disks to normal disks.  These are VMDK's on a NetApp SAN formatted with VMFS.

Is there any reason why I shouldn't just shut the VM down, uncheck the INDEPENDENT checkbox, and boot the VM?  

I'm installing VEEAM, and currently I cannot get backups of these disks because they are not able to be snapshotted.

Thanks!
