What is the best way to backup NFS export presented by EMC VNX Storage ?
We have the Network Share backup client that can protect NFS exports. See the documentation here - https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/expert/92634_nfs_exports.html
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks
As I understand from the KB, I must first install a Linux server and then mount the NFS export from the EMC VNX array?
Yes, NFS exports can only be backed up from a Linux server acting as the access node. If you have an existing Linux media agent in the environment you could use that as the access node.
@Jean-Paul you will have to mount the NFS share first to be able to protect it or were you thinking of a different method? what kind of data is stored on the NFS shares? how much data is it and what kind of data.@Matt Medvedeff pointed out for file-level backup you will have to use an access node, but depending on the environment you could of course also leverage the MA for this.
Thanks for your answer.
