    Oracle S7000 and Backup Exec 2010

    Hi all,

    Anyone got any advice on this: Upgraded from BE 10d today (via 11d) to 2010, and now BE won't let me access my S7410 SAN. 10d had no problems with it, besides complaining that the SAN didn't have a remote agent on it (obviously).

    BE 2010 is using the full domain admin account for access, and if I go to \\sanhostname using this account I get a full list of shares as expected. Bit confused as to why this is suddenly a problem as 10d had no issues?

    Is anyone using the S7000 stuff and Backup Exec 2010 and using it to backup CIFS shares? Got any ideas what the problem might be?

    EDIT: By the way, all I'm getting is 'Access is denied' when I try to expand the hostname to reveal the shares.

    EDIT 2: Hmm, there's logs on the SAN...

    2010-10-25 17:55:29 - /usr/lib/ndmp/ndmpd[844]
    error
    User name is not set at server.

    2010-10-25 17:55:29 - /usr/lib/ndmp/ndmpd[844]
    error
    Authorization denied.
    But I don't want to use NDMP, I want to back up via CIFS... :S

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Huh... so, looks like BE 2010 has NDMP built in, and you have to use it, and you'll need to set up your S7000 with NDMP accounts. Learn something new every day, just wish it was better documented.

    Now to work out why I'm still here at 6pm and why HDD always decide to fail when you reboot at the end of the day.

    Cheers, thought I'd better reply to my own post with an explanation to save someone the hassle next time! One thing I am going to try later today is to disable the NDMP service on the SAN (it was previously enabled but not configured) and see if Backup Exec will fall back to CIFS. Unlikely, and I should probably be using NDMP anyway, but it'd be nice to know.

    EDIT: Looks like a big YES to that one. Disabled NDMP on the S7000 and BE now shows the CIFS shares (doesn't show hidden shares). That's actually really nice functionality, although begin able to choose between CIFS/NDMP on different section lists would be nice. I think I'll probably use CIFS for now to get my old selection lists up and running then move to NDMP once I've figured it out.
