Instead of running VMware data recovery I would like to use our HP Array as a backup to my production VMs. If I have an issue with a VM , I can mount a snapshot to the same host, and assign a new signature to the snapshot LUN. If I add the VM to inventory can this replace the production VM? Will I have any issues using this scenario as my backup?

None at all, this is how we do Backup and Recovery, since 2004!

The only small issues, is the Restored Machine, must have a different name in the Inventory. (or change the original VM name).

and when you add it back, it will ask the question Copied or Moved.

and my EE Article will help you with that

HOW TO: Select the right answer to "I Moved It" or "I Copied It" in VMware vSphere (ESXi)
