Hi,
is it correct, that new Veeam v9 now supports Backup of NetApp Filer, even if the NetApp isn´t the primary storage for VMware? Can we Backup a standalone NetApp Filer?

Thanks
Martin

As mentioned above, the said functionality or more specifically demand for is still being monitored. So, version 9 is not going to have it implemented. Do you have any source what different is stated? Thanks.

Add another person the list of people asking for NDMP support, specifically for backing up NetApp CIFS shares, trying to avoid VM fileservers.

Hi,
backing up NetApp CIFS shares

Have you tried to select a file share as a source in file to tape job?

No I haven't, we do have tape infrastructure at one of our sites but I don't have it set up with Veeam yet, it's still attached to our old commvault system. Is there a way to do a file to disk job with netapp cifs as source?

Alex,
Yup, possible solution would be to run a File to tape job from Veeam B&R server that has access to the said share: it should be possible to select files that reside on the share in the file to tape job source selection.

Dima, none of the attached file shares to the local server are being listed when I try to configure a file to tape job (see attached picture), any suggestions?

Hi Alex,

What if you drill down the Network in "browse for files or folders" dialog?

Can you double check that account you are using for VBR has access to this mapped drive? Thanks

By the way, what happens if you manually enter there ("Folder" string) the UNC path to the share ? Thanks.

It does yes

Looks like this worked thanks. I was hoping that there might have been some way to point this file to tape job to a disk target but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Not sure whether I totally follow you on that. Is the usage of UNC path acceptable for you or you're willing to get something different?

My goal was to somehow back up a UNC path (CIFS share) to a disk target (backup repository)

UNC path (CIFS share) to a disk target (backup repository)

Just to clarify, you want to perform a file level backup of the files that reside on the share (NAS) to the regular disk repository, correct?
