Hi All,

Please do advise how i can perform the backup of my Netapp Luns or shares directly from the Filer using Netbackup. As of now we are doing via WINDOWS as it was affecting our SQL DB performance issue and have some other issues we need to have it backed up directly from the filer , is this possible??

I have heard something called NDMP backup in the filer is that way i can do this backup.

It is a separately licensed option, but NDMP *would* be the way to go:

NetBackup for NDMP is an optional NetBackup application. It enables NetBackup
to use the Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) to initiate and control
backups and restores of Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems.

Hi Nayab

If you are on 7.5, best i would recommend is Replication Director feature.besides andy's NDMP suggestion which is also best option prior to Rep Director
