system services ndmp modify

Modify NDMP service configuration

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


The system services ndmp modify command allows you to modify the NDMP configurations for a node in the cluster. One or more of the following configurations can be modified: This command is not supported on Infinite Volumes.


-node {<nodename>|local} - Node

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

[-enable {true|false}] - NDMP Service Enabled

This optionally specifies whether NDMP is enabled on the node. The default setting is true.

[-clear-text {true|false}] - Allow Clear Text Password

This optionally specifies whether the NDMP password can be sent in clear text. The default setting is true.

[-user-id <text>] - NDMP User ID

This optionally specifies the ID of the NDMP user.

[-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.

Warning: Increasing this parameter can make the storage system unresponsive.


The following example modifies the NDMP configuration on a node named node1. The configuration enables NDMP, disables sending the password in clear text, and specifies an NDMP user named ndmp:

cluster1::> system services ndmp modify -node node1 -enable true 
		 -clear-text false -user-id ndmp
