NDMP Servers Backup to Tape

If your NAS device supports the NDMP protocol, you can back up data from it to tape. For this, you need to utilize the file to tape job.

NDMP Servers Backup to Tape Note:

Support of NDMP servers backup to tape is available in the Enterprise Plus edition of Veeam Backup & Replication. For details, see Veeam Editions Comparison.

To back up data from NAS devices by the NDMP protocol, you need to add the device as an NDMP server. For details, see Adding NDMP Servers.

NDMP Servers Backup to TapeImportant!

Even if the NAS device supporting NDMP protocol is already added to Veeam Backup & Replication, you need to add the NDMP server as a separate procedure. Otherwise you will not be able to perform file backup to tape.

Requirements for NDMP Servers

NDMP version 4 or higher is supported.

Number of Restore Points

For all NDMP devices, the backup chain stored on tapes will consist of 10 restore points maximum. On the 11th run, Veeam Backup & Replication will force an active full.

Limitations for NDMP Servers

  • Only backup of whole volume is supported.
  • The NetApp “SVM-scoped NDMP” mode is supported, however Veeam Backup & Replication does not support the NetApp Cluster Aware Backup (CAB) extension of the NDMP protocol. In SVM-scoped configuration, each cluster node must be added to the backup user interface on their own data LIF IP/DNS address. This is also known as “Node-scoped NDMP”.
  • The NDMP server performs its own backup consistency check for the NDMP volumes. To provide for the correct calculation of the delta of changes and to ensure the backup chain integrity, Veeam Backup & Replication does not allow adding one NDMP volume to more than one file in tape jobs.
