Please be aware:

- NDMP Option backs up over NDMP Protocol (this needs NDMP Option license)

- Share Level backups operate over CIFS Protocol (this needs an Agent for Windows license)

They are exclusively different ways to backup data on a NAS device and you need to make a choice as to which you are using and then use the appropriate license

Also disable NDMP on the NAS:
