I've changed the backup command to:

  You are missing the -M option. Also, why use a proxy host ?

Application Information is:
        HIST=Y
        DIRECT=y
        UPDATE=y
EXTRACT_ACL=y
Savesets are:
        /vol/vol0/.snapshot
        /vol/esxwinos/.snapshot
        /vol/esxwindata/.snapshot
        /vol/esxwinswap/.snapshot
        /vol/esxwinsqllog/.snapshot
        /vol/esxwinsqldata/.snapshot
 I am quite sure you are not supposed to backup snapshots (the dump
itself uses snapshots).
The NetApp filers are also no longer configured in Networker as StorageNodes - 
just clients

The Netapp can be backed up via network using NDMP. The name EMC uses is DSA. 
There are very good examples and diagrams on the NDMP chapter in the admin 
guide. What is your save command for that client, your savesets and your 
attributes?

Subject: [Networker] NDMP Backups - Library connection req'd?

I'm trying to set up NDMP backups of our NetAPP NAS. We are running Networker 7.3.2 on Windows 2003 Server with 3 tape libraries attached via our SAN switch. The NetApp is NOT connected to the SAN - only the LAN at this time.
I have added the NAS nodes as clients and also added them as storage
nodes. I've created a dedicated medias pool and pointed it to a single
drive on Lib2. When I try to back them up I get the following:

* pmurdenasp01:/vol/vol0/.snapshot nsrndmp_save: error, no matching
devices for save of client `pmurdenasp01'; check storage nodes, devices or
pools

Is this because the NAS doesn't have a connection to a tape library?

Our NAS Administrator insists that this can be done without the NAS having a connected library - I'm not so sure.
Any suggestions on proper implementation of NDMP backups ?
