What is needed to backup an EMC Isilon? (nfs shares)
I have been using the user defined selection to backup about 2 TB of data with sketchy results.The job stops partially through so I divided it up into 4 jobs. I see there is an NDMP option and it looks like the Isilon is one of the devices supported. Is there another box needed to make this work? My backup server is connected to the Isilon through the network which is a gig connection but it is 50 miles away. This is BE 2010 R3.
Sorry to look confused but info is sketchy.
The NDMP accelerator from
The NDMP accelerator from Isilon is a Fiber Channel appliance that allows you to backup an Isilon system, without affecting the current nodes. It's a dedicated box to route data through. It's also ONLY a FC connection, thus the BE server and tape unit needs to be LOCAL to it.
NFS is your best route, though ideally your backup server would be local.
