cifs backup Replication Director or NDMP ?



We have Netapp with DataONTAP 8.3 cluster mode.

The files that we want to backup are 20 TB of cifs.

We would like, if it is possible, to use only FC connectivity. 

We need the backups only at primary site.


The SLP will be like:

1) PrimarySnapshoot

    2) Backup from snaphot


Do we need to use replication director or just NDMP type backup?

Backup from snaphot will be at a tape, is there a way to use only FC connectivity?

Do we need to run index from snapshot at the SLP?


Thank you in advance.
