Re: Troubles with NDMP-DSA Backup NW9.1.1 & NetApp Filer over dedicated Interface

Hello,

Networker Server 9.1.1

Stroage Nodes 9.1.1 with RemoteDevice DD for NDMP-Backups

We added storage nodes to our environment that got a direct 10G Ethernet connection to the NetApp Filers. There is one interface connected to the production network and one interface that is directly connected to the NetApp Filer with a private network address of 10.11.11.12.

NetApp Filer is configured with IP address 10.11.11.11.

We used the wizard to configure the NDMP-DSA Backup. Client Direct is disabled.

Backup command: nsrndmp_save -M -P <StorageNode> -T dump

Additional Information:

BUTYPE=dump

DIRECT=Y

HIST=Y

EXTRACT_ACL=y

UPDATE=Y

USE_TBB_IF_AVAILABLE=Y

In this above configuration backups work and move data over the production network.

Our goal is to use the direct connection to optimize backup. Therefor we added the hostname for the storage node with the private ip address on the netapp filer but the backups still moved over the production network.

In the next step we defined a “virtual” hostname of storagenode-fs with IP 10.11.11.12 and edited the Backupcommand to use P storagenode-fs but this did not work either.

Anyone got some ideas on this situation?

Regards,

Patric
