Sharing SCSI Bus in VMware means you can't snapshot VM - is there a workaround?

Hi All

We use "LSI Logic SAS" SCSI Controllers (SCSI Bus Sharing = Virtual) when deploying Windows MSCS/Failover Cluster.

However, this looks to mean that we cannot create a snapshot of the VM.

This is a problem for us as we wish to create snapshots for server level backups (we use Veeam).

Does anybody know a work around for this?

Thank you very much.
