How to perform a dump backup and restore using NDMP services

You can perform a dump backup or restore by using NDMP-compliant backup applications.

Data ONTAP provides a set of environment variables that enable you to perform a tape backup and restore using NDMP services. The dump engine-based restore using NDMP also supports enhanced direct access recovery (DAR), which enables directory DAR and DAR of files with NT streams.

You can also transfer file system data between storage systems by using the ndmpcopy command.
