CIFS share on Netapp backups Incremental not work

Hello,

We have created some folders shares CIFS on NetApp FAS2552 Hybrid Storage Array.

I have created Backup 2014 Job bakup Full and backup Incremental using CIFS share on Netapp.

The problem is that backup job Incremental is not working .. it  is saving all the data and not just the modified objects.. ..

 

I have read that CIFS backups EXEc may not be able to do Incremental or Differential processing ? is it right ?? this article bellow

http://www.veritas.com/community/forums/any-way-force-backup-exec-using-cifs-protool-not-ndmp-protool

How can i process to do backup incremental ?

The first time when the first backup full is finished it says me . Normal is is a CIFS share.

What is the BEST solution to backup CIFS Share ? for incremental .. and so more..

 

V-79-57344-3844 - The Backup Exec server was unable to connect to the Remote Agent on machine FRPA11...

Remote Agent not detected on FRPA112FS1.

 

I am asking that if it is needed to have the agent installed on the server for incremental work ?

Re: CIFS share on Netapp backups Incremental not work

Hello i think https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.TECH68920 is not up to date .. or it it to update URGENCY ... :Smiley Very Happy

 

 

I have tested a new job Full / Incremental with modify file folders options to " using Catalogs" and incremental work good. 

When i did a incremental backup i'st work and i'ts save only the new or modified files, i have test it.

If you want to process

If you want to process incremental on a NetApp you have to use the NDMP option and Level based backups (which may not be an appropriate solution depending on what type of data you are storing on the NetApp - see the comments about the NDMP option in this blog https://www.veritas.com/community/blogs/lan-free-including-san-backup-configurations-with-backup-exec )

 

We do not support incremental backups over shares on systems that do not have a Backup Exec Remote Agent running. This is stated in this article http://www.veritas.com/docs/000037777 )

WHat did yoi thnik about this  Colin ?

Whether or not you see it

Whether or not you see it work for you does not mean it is supported or will work for every environment so officially we stand by the Tech Article.

 

Note: we still do no official testing of incremental or differential backups across shares where no remote agent involved.

Re: CIFS share on Netapp backups Incremental not work

Dear Colin, 

Ok, how i can configure the job with NDMP in backup exec  ? Did you have a technical article for that ? I have installed the agent NDMP.

I want to save a cifs folder on a tape drive RObotic library. 

Thx for your help

For setup of NDMP option, you

For setup of NDMP option, you need to read the admin guide

For performing incremental backups using NDMP option you should do some research on how to configure Level based backups on NDMP devices.
