Backing up most recent SME snapshots with NetBackup via NDMP

I am trying to back up most recent SME snapshots with NetBackup via NDMP

I figured out the share name using snapdrive. I then mounted the snapshot to figure out where on the volume the recent snapshots were.

Symantec NetBackup isn't liking it though.

I am getting this error.

:08 PM - Error ndmpagent(pid=40088) NDMP backup failed, path = /vol/exchgbosn01b_sg01_log_snapinfo/exchgbosn01b/.snapshot/exchsnap_exchgbosp01b_recent
12/15/2008 12:17:10 PM - Error ndmpagent(pid=40088) ndmp_data_start_backup failed, status = 9 (NDMP_ILLEGAL_ARGS_ERR)

Is it possible to backup the a snapshot directory on the volume via NDMP?

Re: Backing up most recent SME snapshots with NetBackup via NDMP

Just a quick one as I had this issue. Is the tape conected to the filer with the volumes on it? We had a cluster of FAS3070 and had NDMP_ILLEGAL_ARGS_ERR.

If you turn on ndmpd debug 70 you can see everything what is going on. The log goes to the console so I recommend you record the console out put to a log. Debug level 0 turns it off again.

Hope this helps
