  • Convert Windows File System CIFS/SMB Share Agent to NAS NDMP Agent
    Posted: 09-17-2018, 5:37 PM

    When we first got Isilon and CV installed, the team couldn't get NDMP backups working, or they took forever, or something. Nobody really remembers. So they started doing backups with Windows File System iDA and Linux FS iDA directly from the SMB and NFS respectively. 

    Now that CV and Isilon 8.1.x APIs have been straightened out and NDMP Intellisnap backups work really fast I would like to convert our existing SMB share backups. We have a 3 year retention on a 7 TB subclient. Is it possible to directly convert that backup data to be under the NDMP client? Because doing them side by side and doubling our capacity license is a hard sell to mgmt.
