You can do NDMP backups to OST via LAN transport to the media server. All you need to do is setup your ndmp credentials in NBU and on your NAS device. At least this worked for me with a VNX-File NDMP backup.

If you want to transport NDMP backups via SAN to the DATADOMAIN, then you would need the VTL license/HBA on the datadomain.

Hi Team,

I have been given this task to move the NDMP backups from one master server to another.

The current master server backups up NDMP to CDL (Clariion Disk Libraries) typical environment via SAN.

 Now the new master server has no TL/VTL/CDL its just has Datadomain used as netbackup openstorage device.

Now my question is this .

Do I have to procure VTL license from DATADOMAIN in order to do NDMP backups ?

If I do NDMP backups to Datadomain open storage device will it have any performance implications ?

Another point that crossed my mind is this : openstorage backups would be via LAN not via SAN would that reduce the speed of ndmp backups to great levels ?

Anyone who has implement Netbackup NDMP backups on Datadomain please provide me with their valueable inputs.
