Backup works perfectly, but restoring any file gives me an authentication failed error. The NDMP device has a "global" ndmp user configured in the BE device tab (tried this with the newly created ndmpd backup user and the netapp root) and I can also configure separate resource credentials in the BE restore job.
I have tried setting the same accounts for the "global" ndmp device and the restore credentials and have also tried setting different accounts for them.
NDMP debug level is at 5 and this is what shows up in /etc/messages. The session is closed immediately after access has been granted.

Running wireshark on the backup server doesn't produce much. It shows a SYN -> SYN/ACK -> NDMP CONNECT_CLOSE Request from the backup server.
The Resource Credentials for the restore job behave very oddly. If I enter NDMP credentials and do "Test All" it fails. If I use my regular domain backup account, it is successful. There are no failed or successful logons in the NetApp ndmp log and tracing this check shows that it doesn't even connect to the SAN. This makes me think that this whole issue is more likely flaky BE behaviour rather than misconfiguration of the SAN.
I'm afraid I cannot help at the moent because I'm facing NDMP problem as well.
Could you be so kind and inform me how did you manage to connect tape library to FAS2020?
My configuration is: blade servers with FC cards, SAN swithes, IBM TS3100 FC library, FAS2020 filler with two FC controllers. The blade servers works using XenServer virtualisation platform and four paths to the filler.
I hope I made zoning corretly - tape drive to one filler's port 0b. But the filler doesn't discover tape drive.
I have red at NetApp KB that it's impossible to connect filler and tape (even through switch) on the same port.
