I assume you mean they do not want to do Independent/Persistent right Joe?  They would not want to do Dependent.

You probably don't want to do independent disks.  Those disks aren't

included in snapshots, and snapshots are useful for many things such as

preparing for upgrades or even for regular backups.  Keep in mind I work

for Veeam, but regardless, there are various backup solutions which use

VMware snapshots.  That shouldn't be a concern for things such as GW or

eDir as there are ways to address these applications, such as shutting down

the POA before taking the snapshot and firing it back up as soon as the

snapshot is taken.  I actually wrote about this in a Cool Solutions article

a little ways back.
