NDMP Backup

Not applicable

Hi, I just have install the NDMP option to backup an EMC Celerra. I tasted and it works ok. The question is tha I only see the FS and not their subdirectories or files, how do I see that? The workarround a made is to write the entire address, is that the only way I can do that or there is an other way

The premise of NDMP is to back up an entire volume, not selected folders within.  You may be able to use exclusions though to not back up certain directories, though I have not tried.


If you want greater control of what you are backing up, you wouldnt use NDMP which is pretty restrictive as it is.  I rather dislike the protocol personally.  You would just backup the CIFS shares instead.  Though it's slower as CIFS is a pretty inefficient protocol, that is unless your device supports SMB2
