Thanks for the info. It's still failing....any thoughts on this lot?

The AFTD it's backing up to is not an NDMP device.

Cheers
Nick

Try adding -M to the end of that command to use the NDMP DSA functionality, 
i.e.:
nsrndmp_save -T dump -M

If you want to use a storage node instead of the primary Networker server, use:
nsrndmp_save -T dump -M -P storagenode.example.com

(replace storagenode.example.com with your storage node's hostname, and make 
sure the same storage node is set in the Storage Nodes field)

This should get you what you want; and you probably know this already, but the 
backups will still be NDMP format, so you need to restore them to the Celerra 
in order to make sense of the backup data.
