Before you can perform NDMP backups of Vserver or cluster file server NAS clients, you must define the client type in the NAS client properties and add an Additional Setting on the MediaAgent used for the NAS client backups.
Configure the client type in the NAS client properties as follows:
In theCommCell Browser, expandClient Computers.
Right-click the NAS client computer and then clickProperties.
In theGeneraltab, select theClient Typecheck box and proceed as follows:
If the NAS client is a cluster file server, clickCluster File Server.
If the NAS client is a Vserver, clickStorage Virtual Machineand select the appropriate client from theSelect Cluster Clientlist.
Add thesCabMatchPairAdditional Setting on the MediaAgent used to backup the NAS client as follows:
In theCommCell Browser, expandStorage Resources>MediaAgents.
Right-click the MediaAgent used to backup the Vserver or cluster file server NAS client, and then clickProperties.
Click theAdditional Settingstab, and then clickAdd.
Enter the following Additional Setting information in the appropriate fields:
Ensure theEnablecheck box is selected, and then clickOK.
But nothing beyond that. From the instructions on the non-NetApp documentation it seems that I should now be able to see volumes across all nodes in the Cluster but that's not the case. I have a support case open for further information but thought I'd check here to see if anyone has any further information or has experience getting this working.
I should clarify that I cannot automatically detect the volumes as the exist on the other node. I seem to be able to specify their paths in the format of <SVM>/<volume_name> as they exist on the other node and backups work. Setup the job and will be running the backup tonight.
