Help configuring Netbackup with NDMP/SAN/SAS
I am looking for some help configuring a Netbackup 7.5 install to do a n NDMP backup over SAN.
I have a Redhat Enterprise 6u3 media/master server running Netbackup 7.5 with the 220.127.116.11 update. I have an Oracle/Storagetek SL-48 library with 4 LTO5 drives attached via SAS to the server. I am backing up a single Netapp filer with about 25TB in 22 volumes. Both the server and the filer have fiber channel HBAs and are connected to a Brocade SAN switch. Both are connected to the network via 1GB copper connections.
Backups are working, but are not using the SAN connections. I believe that I need to have the Shared Storage Option to do NDMP via a SAN. I had that on a previous install, but was told I didn't need it for a single server install. I believe that I do need SSO, but would like to confirm that before I repurchase the license.
I would like to confirm that I can do NDMP backups over the SAN with the SAS drives I have. I have considered attaching the library to the filer, but I believe that disallows the use of DAR. Any advice on the bast way to configure this is appreciated.
I was doing NDMP backups via SAN on my older Solaris 10/Netbackup 6.5 with 4 LTO3 fiber drives in a Storagetek SL500 library.
