NetVault Backup Plug-in for SnapMirror to Tape 11.4.5 - User Guide

Adding a NetApp filer

To start using the plug-in for backups and restores, you must add the applicable NetApp filers to the plug-in, and configure a user account to log in to the filer.

1
In the Navigation pane, click Guided Configuration, and then on the NetVault Configuration Wizard page, click Create Backup Jobs.
2
To open the NetVault Backup Selections page, click Create New next to the Selections list.
4
Select NDMP SnapMirror to Tape, and in the Actions list, click Add Server.
5
In the NDMP Server dialog box, configure the following settings.

Name

Type a name for the filer. The filer name must be unique. You can assign the actual name of the filer to easily identify it in the NetVault Backup environment.

Address(es)

Type the IP address of the filer. To configure multiple addresses, separate them using a comma.

If you are using Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3, specify the IP address of the Cluster Management Logical Interface (LIF) or Node Management LIF.

Port

By default, the filer is configured to listen on port number 10000.

Unless otherwise required, do not change the listener port for the filer.

Account

Specify a user account that can be used to log in to the filer. The user account must have necessary privileges to perform NDMP backups and restores.

Password

Type the password for the user account.

Use UTF-8 Conversions

To convert the filenames and display them correctly according to the locale configured on the NetVault Backup WebUI, select this check box. This feature can only be used if the filer supports UTF-8 encoding.

To use this feature, do the following:

Set the configuration option Codepage for UTF-8 Conversions for the Plug‑in for SnapMirror to Tape. For more information, see Configuring default settings.
NOTE: For NetApp filers, the actual conversion is specified on a per-job basis by setting plug-in option Request Unicode File Information. However, the Use UTF-8 Conversions check box must be selected to use this feature.

Editing server details

1
Start the Backup Job Wizard, and click Create New next to the Selections list.
3
Select the filer, and in the Actions list, click Edit Server.
To change the password, select the New Password check box, and type the password.

Removing a server

1

Select the filer, and in the Actions list, click Remove Server.

Configuring NetVault Backup user account

When backing up multiple volumes, the plug-in uses the “default” user account to run child jobs. If you assign a new password to this user account, you must also update the account details for the plug-in. Otherwise, the backup jobs that include multiple volumes report an error (“unable to log on to auditor, check account and password are valid”) and fail.

1
Start the Backup Job Wizard, and click Create New next to the Selections list.
3
Select the filer, and in the Actions list, click Set Account.
4
In the NetVault Account dialog box, provide the following information:
Account: Type default, which is the user account used to run subjobs.
New Password: Select the New Password check box, and specify the password for the “default” account.
