Data Backup and Recovery Discussions
I was working on ndmpcopy on Ontap 8.3.2.p2.
The cluster is running in vserver scope and the ndmp is on. The ndmp protocol is enable on the vserver.
I run ndmpcopy and got the authentication failed message.
cluster::> node run -node node ndmpcopy -sa ndmpuser:password -da ndmpuser:password source-ip:/vserver/volume dest-ip:/vserver/volumeNdmpcopy: Starting copy [ 44 ] ...Ndmpcopy: source-ip: Notify: Connection establishedNdmpcopy: dest-ip: Notify: Connection establishedNdmpcopy: Authentication failed for sourceNdmpcopy: Done
See The Solution
Make sure that ndmp services enabled for the node.
system services ndmp on -node node-name
system services ndmp show # to see the status
after enabled the node ndmp, I still got the Authentication failed for source error message.
The command is bit incomplete..
First try to create a NDMP user on both the clusters for the concerned VSERVER. Then genearate a password on both sides.
ndmp generate-password command
then use the usual command u are using.. Just add the NDMP user id and password instead of the one u were using previously... Cheers..!!!!

I have to use command to let system create user and generate password then ndmpcopy works.
