  • Check on NetApp filer if NDMP service is running with:

    ndmpd status

    According to NDMP Appliance Information  doc:

    By default, the NDMP service is not started at boot time. To start it, add the
    following line to the end of the /etc/rc file on the NetApp system:

    ndmpd on

    Check/verify comms from NBU master/media server with:
    tpautoconf -verify <netapp_host>

    Please share output of these commands.

  • Sorry Marianne/.....


    I need solution for this...

  • You still did not give us any background information. New config that is not working? Have you added and tested credentials? Which make/model filer?
  • Hi Marianne,
