Modify NDMP service configuration

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.


The system services ndmp service modify command allows you to modify the NDMP service configurations for a node in the cluster. The following configuration can be modified:

  • NDMP Common Sessions

This command is not supported on Infinite Volumes.


-node {<nodename>|local} - Node (privilege: advanced)

This specifies the node whose NDMP configuration is to be modified.

[-common-sessions <integer>] - NDMP Common Sessions (privilege: advanced)

This optional parameter specifies the number of extra common NDMP sessions supported, in addition to the number of backup and restore sessions supported for a platform. The default value is 4 for all platforms. The number of backup and restore sessions are platform dependent.

Note Increasing this parameter can make the storage system unresponsive.


The following example modifies the NDMP configuration on a node named node1. The configuration sets the NDMP Common Sessions to 16:

cluster1::> system services ndmp modify -node node1
     -common-sessions 16
