An administrator without root privileges uses the NDMP-specific password for any NDMP backup and restore operation that requires password input in either a backup application or CLI environment.
username is the user name of the administrator.
The system returns an 8- or 16- character string, depending on the password length set using the ndmpd.password_length command. For example:
filer>ndmpd password barbaraD password QM12N%$cnaFWPBVe
You use this password in any current or future NDMP operation that requires password input.Note: This NDMP-specific password is valid until you change the password to your regular account.
