Re: Feature request: NetApp NDMP support

I'm with Lagcat, and the Why is that backups to disk take longer that storage snapshots from the VMs perspective. The longer that a snapshot is associated with the VM, the longer that it takes to consolidate which can cause issues on storage sensitive VMs.

We would also highly appreciate NDMP support for Veeam. Specifically, backing up the CIFS via NDMP directly.

We don't need NDMP/Tape, but Netapp CIFS support (indexing of Snapshots for single file restore) would be wonderful!

Because we often use NetApp as a backup repository we would like to file a NDMP tape support feature request. A very common configuration is connecting a tape library via Fibre Channel or SCSI to the NetApp to perform NDMP tape backup.
Add another prospect to the list for this feature. I think a nice 9.1 patch with this feature sounds great :)

It has not been planned for version 9. Also, amount of work required makes it a feature of product release, not of product update. Thanks.

I too would like to see that feature added.

We have a NETAPP with our VMs on it backed up with VEEAM 8.
But we also want to be able to backup our CIFS filer Share with VEEAM ideally with Snapshot.
We have looked at File Copy but its So SLOOOOOOOOOOOOW....

If this is interest to you don't forget to comment so VEEAM can get a clear picture if there is interest in adding this feature or not...

Any update regarding this feature request for Veeam 9.5? In particular our Enterprise customers are requesting this feature.

Nothing changes in 9.5 for this matter. Nevertheless, we are aware of the demand for this particular functionality, so it's not like we're turning a blind eye to it. Thanks.

In the meantime, one thing about v9.5 is that tape operations (especially files to tape jobs) have seen significant performance improvements so that should help alleviate things in the short term.

We just upgraded to v9.5. However, file to tape seems only suppported for Windows or Linux sources. Is it poassible to backup CIFS-Shares to Tape? We don´t have a Library attached to Veeam Backup Server, so I can´t test it and the previous posts are not absolutely clear about this.

We´d appreciate NDMP Support very much, to backup our CIFS-Volumes directly to tape via NDMP .

Yes. You can specify the path in the file to tape > add files window or add cifs server to VBR and then pick the server from the list.

[MERGED] Backup NetApp CIFS vfiler

Post by Robert Grawe » Jan 04, 2017 12:03 pm

Hi,

someone has information when it will be possible with Veeam to make a backup of NetApp CIFS vfilern? I know many that do not use a classic file server but netapp CIFS and which the feature urgently need. Has anyone a workaround how one could implement with the current version?

Thanks

Hi, Robert, and welcome to our forums,

As mentioned above, you can use files to tape jobs to archive to tapes files residing on those shares.

Native support has been already tracked as feature request for one of the next product versions.

Thanks.
