Not sure exactly what you mean here.  Is the drive shared as a direct
attach device (switch configured so the filer can see the drive as a
local drive), or are you trying to use this SSO media drive as a remote
NDMP target?

Both should work.  We have some SSO drives that are shared with a Netapp
filer as direct attach and we have some that are used as remote NDMP

Is this a direct connection or is it going over the network?

Recommend getting at *least* to 6.5.3 and probably no reason not to go
to 6.5.5.  I wouldn't be surprised if 6.5 has some NDMP bugs.
