Re: unable to configure NDMP in netbackup

Master and medias all need to be able to reach the NetApp.

You've not said alot about your config or versions.

1) What port(s) did you telnet, and from where to where?

2) How did you setup the NetApp?  CLI or GUI?

3) Have you tried to "verify" the NetApp from the command line?

4) 7-mode or C-mode for the NetApp?

5) Versions, NetBackup and NetApp?

6) Have you ever successfully configured a NetApp device, or is this your first time?

sudo ./tpautoconf -verify <nasfilername>
This NDMP hostname does not exist. << Little clue there. Can you resolve the name, forward and reverse? you try with
NDMP failed to verify host                    << the IP instead?

Did the NetApp admin create a new user?

For NetApp, the user MUST be root. Another user will not work. 

Please go through the NetApp chapter in this doc:  
Veritas NetBackup™ for NDMP: NAS Appliance Information

Known restrictions
■ The user name used with the tpconfig command (or in GUI) must be defined as root for each data mover. 

If the NetApp team does not want to share the root password, they need to work with you so that one of them will type in the password when needed. The password is not stored anywhere in NBU in clear text.

Hi Marianne,

 

Thanks for your prompt response, Netapp team created new user name and password with root permissions

 

Netapp team followed below steps for generating password

Vserver scope:

  1. Create an ndmp user account for the vserver.  This step is optional as you may use the vserver 'vsadmin' account if you wish.
    cluster:Smiley Embarassed security login create -user-or-group-name ndmpuser -application ssh -authmethod password -vserver <SVM-name> -role vsadmin-backup
  2. Generate an ndmp password for the user account.  Note: This password will not be the same as the password for the user account.
    cluster:Smiley Embarassed vserver services ndmp generate-password -vserver <SVM-name> -user ndmpuser

     Vserver: svm2
        User: ndmpuser
    Password: yMGg5d0LyUG8l1kn

Maybe you missed this, from @Marianne :

"Known restrictions - The user name used with the tpconfig command (or in GUI) must be defined as root for each data mover. "

Re: unable to configure NDMP in netbackup

@vidyasagar 

I was under the impression that the restriction is from NetApp, not NBU. 

Looking at the NetApp documentation (https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1030449 ) I see that NetApp allows for different user with necessary credentials. 

Please reply to @sdo and @RiaanBadenhorst's posts as well?

Re: unable to configure NDMP in netbackup

1) create

username : ndmp

password : ndmp123

2) Use valid hostname and IP in host file before adding in netbackup.

3) Make sure 10000 port is opened between media server and NDMP.

4) add the credentials with tpconfig command.

tpconfig -add -nh <ndmp filername> -userid  -password
