File System For any supported file server, use one of the file system agents: Use a Windows proxy to archive and recover the data on the CIFS share. Basic UNIX security and permission are preserved; however, some advanced ACLs and extended attributes from UNIX file system will not be preserved using this method.

For mixed mode on NetApp file servers, we recommend a proxy FPolicy server on Windows using OnePass for NetApp:

For other supported file server, individual node drivers using OnePass:

For NetApp File Servers, recover files from either NFS or CIFS shares:

For other file servers, note that files that were archived using a Windows proxy can only be recovered using a CIFS share:
