Adding an NDMP server to Backup Exec


Adding an NDMP server to Backup Exec

To configure Backup Exec to use the NDMP option, you must add the NDMP server to Backup Exec. If any storage devices are attached to the NDMP server, Backup Exec discovers them automatically after the services are restarted, and then adds them to the list of devices.

In a CASO environment, you can add an NDMP server only to the following servers:

  • A central administration server

  • A managed media server on which the device and media database is located

When you add an NDMP server, you can select the media servers that can access the devices that are attached to the NDMP server.

See About sharing storage.

To add an NDMP server to Backup Exec

  1. On the navigation bar, click Devices.

  2. In the task pane, under Device Tasks, click Configure devices assistant.

  3. In the Configure Devices Assistant dialog box, under NDMP Option, click NDMP Storage.

  4. If the NDMP Server Configuration dialog box appears, click Add an NDMP Server.

    This step does not apply if this is the first NDMP server. The NDMP Server Configuration dialog box appears only if an NDMP server already exists.

  5. On the General tab, enter the appropriate information.

    See Add NDMP Server options.

  6. On the Sharing tab, select each media server that you want to use the devices that are attached to this NDMP server.

    The Sharing tab appears only if you have the Backup Exec Central Admin Server Option or the SAN Shared Storage Option installed. You must also have more than one media server.

  7. Click OK to add the NDMP server.

  8. Restart Backup Exec services.
