Configuring NetBackup NDMP option

I am in the process of configuring the NDMP option for NetBackup to backup Shares on a NetApp storage. However the tape library is connected to the NetBackup Media server. I already installed the NDMP license. I am yet to add the NDMP Host. What I would like to know is would I be able to backup data from the NetApp to the Tape Library that is connected to the NetBackup Media Server?

Yes - that is no problem - it is what is known as 3 way or remote NDMP

The data gets called from the filer and passes over the network to the media server which writes the data to tape

See the NDMP guide for full details:
