NetApp support RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are transitioning from Trend products to Forefront products, and one gap that I see is replacing the Trend for Netapp to scan our filers through NDMP or other native methods. Is there a Forefront product that has this capability that I'm not recognizing, or is it on the roadmap for the future?

    Any suggestions on how to configure Forefront Client Security to scan CIFS shares from a NetApp filer?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the post.

    Unfortunately,we don’t have support for Netapp filers. Please understand taht Netapp has a VSAPI type protocol that copies writes, the write is cached while the server is scanning once the server scans it sends a clean/unclean message to the filer which allows it to proceed with completing the write to disk.

    Hope this helps.
