How to backup vol0 without ndmpd

Hello everybody

Im looking for a possability to backup my primary filers vol0.

Is it possible just to mirror the entire vol0 to my backup filer?

The thing is I don't have a ndmpd license for the primary filer...

Thanks for some feedback!

You can snapshot vol0 so I don't see why you would not be able to snapmirror it as well.  I don't think you need an ndmp license do you?  you just turn it on with 'ndmpd on'

Re: How to backup vol0 without ndmpd

You can use vol copy or ndmpcopy to replicate vol0 from one controller to another.  Or if you have a SnapMirror license you can use that as well.

Of course, NDMP is included with ONTAP so by license I assume you mean for your backup software.

Hope this helps.

Or you could use the dump command on the filer to write it to tape.
