Good morning Connect community
We have a scenario where a NetApp filer has a direct attached tape library for NDMP backups using CA ARCserve; the customer is migrating from ARCserve to Backup Exec 2010 R3 and we have the idea of connecting the media server to the same tape library that the NetApp is connected to; the hardware supports this but we are uncertain how Backup Exec would view this.
Is it possible to configure an NDMP device and media server to tape library that is direct-attached to both?
Your thoughts and ideas would be most welcome!
You firstly need to NDMP license , Make sure the netapp device is compatible with Backup exec
refer the followign document http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH48957
Its old 11d document and there many enhancement made to the NDMP option like you can run ndmp backup to the localy attached robotic library , duplciate NDMP ets .
Have look of the best practice document as well http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO21783
