DPM 2010 and Backuping up NAS Devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • anyone using DPM 2010 to backup a NAS device?  If so, how, and anyone doing it with and EMC Celerra NAS?  Also, I don't believe DPM 2010 can do NDMP backups, but, anything in the works for future versions to do NDMP that anyone has heard?

  • Hi,

    DPM can only protect data that has a DPM agent installed and that support VSS Shadow Copies, that usually excludes the ability to backup network attached storage devices.  NDMP  - Network Data Management Protocol, is a protocol invented by the NetApp and Legato companies, meant to transport data between NAS devices and Backup devices. DPM has no plans to support that protocol at this time.
