Netapp filer, some NDMP backups and some CIFS -- not possible?
I have backups that I have to complete on a Netapp filer. I've been doing NDMP backups for years. Now, we need to encrypt while backing up some of that data. Not all of it. Just two directories in a TB of data.
So, I found out that BE 2010 can't support encrypted backups for NDMP backups. Cool.
So I want to set up a CIFS backup for just the two directories that need to be encrypted during backup. I found this page:
Notice that the last line in the "solution" says that you have to turn off NDMP for the filer that is sharing the data:
"2. Stop the NDMP protocol on the server that is hosting the share."
I can't do that, because I need to continue to back up all but those two directories via NDMP.
I tried mapping the drive locally on the backup server and making it persistent, thinking I could back up the mapped drive and leave myself logged in. But the mapped drive doesn't show up in the selection list.
Ideas, suggestions? Can what I want to do be done, or is that tech note above telling me this isn't do-able?
