Change from NDMP node-scoped to SVM-scoped for testing?


We are evaluating new backup software for our Netapp environment.  We currently use Avamar, which is non-cluster-aware, so  our clusters are in node-scoped NDMP mode. 


For our test, we want to test cluster-aware products.  This will require us to switch the cluster to SVM-scoped.


The question is, if we switch to SVM-scope, will this cause our currently-running Avamar backups to fail?



To my knowledge yes it will.  Once you flip over to SVM scoped, it will be a cluster aware backup.
