NBU Client w/Nimble storage VSS Hardware Provider

Hello,

Just wondering about limitations here.

Can these snaps go to an MSDP or are they limited to basic/advanced disk and/or tape?

Since NBU indexes these snaps, are granular restores available?

Thanks in advance.

As there is no restrcitions mentioned I think it should work

Thanks nbutech.

I watched the demos by Bill Roth, an old Veritas Product Marketing Engineer.

I hit him up on LinkedIn as well.

Yes, you shoud be able to send backups to MSDP - it should work just like any other provider.  i.e. NetBackup Client should not care who or what the provider is, it just takes its backup data from VSS.  Essentially, the backup data comes from the VSS writer.  And the VSS writer is what makes a request down to a provider to use a volume to provide shadowstorage to take a shadow.
