Enable SVM-scoped NDMP on the cluster

Contributors

You can configure SVM-scoped NDMP on the cluster by enabling SVM-scoped NDMP mode and NDMP service on the cluster (admin SVM).

About this task

Turning off node-scoped NDMP mode enables SVM-scoped NDMP mode on the cluster.

Steps
  1. Enable SVM-scoped NDMP mode by using the system services ndmp command with the node-scope-mode parameter.

    cluster1::> system services ndmp node-scope-mode off
    NDMP node-scope-mode is disabled.
  2. Enable NDMP service on the admin SVM by using the vserver services ndmp on command.

    cluster1::> vserver services ndmp on -vserver cluster1

    The authentication type is set to challenge by default and plaintext authentication is disabled.

    Note

    For secure communication, you should keep plaintext authentication disabled.

  3. Verify that NDMP service is enabled by using the vserver services ndmp show command.

    cluster1::> vserver services ndmp show
    
    Vserver       Enabled   Authentication type
    ------------- --------- -------------------
    cluster1      true      challenge
    vs1           false     challenge
