backup emc filer via ndmp over fiber

Created: 16 Aug 2012 | 1 comment

I have a 5220 appliance running NB 7.5 and am backing up my EMC vnx filer via NDMP over our production network.  Due to the increasing amount of data on our filer, our ndmp backups are taking days to complete as well as eating up bandwidth.  I would like to move this to run over fiber to increase the speed and get it off of our production network.

Has anyone had experience with this?

As far as I know, this isn't supported. 

Are you using bonded connections?

Have you tried using Accelerator to reduce the volume of data you're sending?  If this is NFS and you're running 2.5, you can mount the export directly to the appliance.
