  1. Netapp NDMP configuration issues

    Hello,


    For some reason, one of my filers has "cut" version of ndmpd. I can't
    run any backups because of that. Just take a look...

    nap8*> ndmpd
    usage: ndmpd [on|off|status|probe []|kill |
    killall|version [?|]]
    where is the highest ndmp version (in the range
    of 1 to 4) allowed by the filer.

    As you see here, there is no password option.

    For example, his partner, nap7, has full set of options available...

    nap7*> ndmpd
    usage: ndmpd [on|off|status|probe []|kill |
    killall|
    password []|version [?|]]
    where is the highest ndmp version (in the range
    of 1 to 4) allowed by the filer.

    that's the options output for ndmpd:

    nap8*> options ndmpd
    ndmpd.access all
    ndmpd.authtype challenge
    ndmpd.connectlog.enabled off
    ndmpd.enable on
    ndmpd.ignore_ctime.enabled off
    ndmpd.offset_map.enable on
    ndmpd.password_length 16
    ndmpd.preferred_interface disable (value might be overwritten in
    takeover)

    All backups failed. Netbackup 6 error code is 99. "ndmpd backup failed
    for /vol/vol0", no extra information is available..

    Any ideas?

    Mike

    IIRC versions of NBU before 5.something did not do challenge auth.
    Try changing it to "plaintext".

    Did you recently upgrade NBU or Ontap? Also enable the connect log
    for more details.

    The file /vol/vol0/etc/java/netapp.zip on filer nap8 is old. You need
    to update the file.


  4. Re: Netapp NDMP configuration issues

    It was old. I just copied file from the different netapp running the
    same DataOnTap.
    Nothing changed. Do I miss something?

  5. Re: Netapp NDMP configuration issues

    It can be too old and that is why you do not see "password" in the
    command usage. The one with "password" description is newer and may
    have some bug fixes. NetApp NDMP Server is done in Java, and the
    execution image is in netapp.zip. You can copy the file from nap7 and
    reboot the filer nap8.

  6. Re: Netapp NDMP configuration issues

    Is there any other way than reboot a filer? That's live one and that's
    one I don't have backup for...

  7. Re: Netapp NDMP configuration issues

    Reboot is the only way to update ndmp executable image. Since it is a
    live system, it is better to find out what is wrong with the ndmp
    backup.
    You may need to ask NetApp customer support for help. If a ndmp log
    can be generated, NetApp may be able to tell why ndmp backup fails on
    nap8.

    Do nap7 and nap8 have the same setting for ndmpd options?
