Storage options for virtual machines: Raw device mappings, VMFS RDM limitations

There are two types of RDMs: virtual compatibility mode RDMs and physical compatibility mode RDMs. Physical mode RDMs, in particular, have some fairly significant limitations:

No VMware snapshots

No VCB support, because VCB requires VMware snapshots
No cloning VMs that use physical mode RDMs into templates

No migrating VMs with physical mode RDMs if the migration involves copying the disk

No vMotion with physical mode RDMs
