Symantec Back up Exec NDMP question / EMC VNXe 3150 or VNXe 3300

Created: 01 Nov 2012 | 1 comment's picture

I  want to back up either VNXe to the media server(backup server) and then to tape, I understand that this can be done using three way support. I also understand that single file restores can happen using this method but what I need clarification on is whether or not I can select single files on the VNXe 3150 or VNXe 3300 and back only that up if required.   There is no documentation that suggests we can’t but I do need a firm answer if this is possible or not.

You cannot select a single file backup with NDMP.  NDMP is done at the volume level.

You could backup a single file if backing up from the UNC path or CIFS mount.

There is an online portal, save yourself the long hold times. Create ticket online, then call in with ticket # in hand :-) "We backup data to restore, we don't backup data just to back it up."
