You can add that NAS in with \\IP_Address\Share and you should be able to backup the data. No need for the NDMP option.

You will need a RAWS license to be compliant though as you are backing  up FROM the NAS.

Hi CraigV,

Thank you for your reply, i thought it too and we have a RAWS Agent but do you know should it installed or register on the nas or its enough to have a RAWS Lic?.

Thank you!

You won't be able to install the RAWS agent on the NAS at all. You do need it though for compliancy.
