How to duplicate backed up NDMP data

You can create a job to duplicate backup data. When you create a duplicate job, you can select a device that is attached to a Backup Exec media server or to a NAS server. You can use tape devices, backup-to-disk devices, or virtual tape libraries.

Backup Exec supports the following configurations:

  • Two tape devices that are attached locally to the Backup Exec media server.

  • Two tape devices that are attached locally to a NAS server.

  • One tape device that is attached locally to a NAS server and one tape device that is attached locally to another NAS server.

  • One tape device that is attached locally to a Backup Exec media server and one tape device that is attached locally to a NAS server.

The procedure to duplicate NDMP data is the same as the procedure to duplicate any other type of data. However, you must select the logon credential for the source NDMP server.

See Duplicating backed up data.

Note:

If the data that you want to duplicate is hardware-encrypted, you should choose a destination device that allows hardware encryption. Otherwise, the duplicate job fails.
