Enabling NDMP on NetApp File Server

To perform full system recovery of NAS data, make sure that NDMP is enabled on the file server.

Before You Begin

Complete the following tasks:

Procedure

Option 1: Command Line

  1. From a file server command line, run the ndmpd on command.
  2. Edit the /etc/rc file on the file server and add the command to the end of the file. This ensures that NDMP will be enabled each time the file server is rebooted.

Option 2: Web Browser

  1. From a standard web browser, enter the URL: http://filername/na_admin.
  2. Login using your login and password.
  3. Select NDMP.
  4. Click Enable NDMP.

    NDMP is now enabled and will start automatically each time the file server is rebooted. You can also configure CIFS shares and NFS exports.
