    IBM®, as a result of its recent product introduction of the IBM System Storage™ N series, has become more tightly integrated with network-attached storage (NAS), exploiting the backup and recovery features of the N series and Network Appliance™ storage systems.

    This IBM Redbooks® publication provides detailed descriptions and setup instructions, practical examples, and best practices for backing up the IBM System Storage N series using the IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager. This book includes descriptions and instructions for using the latest enhancements made to IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, specifically for the IBM System Storage N series and Network Appliance storage systems.

    You will learn how to configure and set up the IBM System Storage N series and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.3 and 6.1 using NDMP backup and restore functions.

    We address the following topics:

    -- Configuring the N series for Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) usage

    -- Using the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager software

    -- Backing up qtrees

    -- Single folder backup

    -- Single file/folder restore

    -- Restoring using NDMP via GUI and command-line interface

    -- Restoring from NDMP backup to an alternative site/location on N series systems

    -- Integrating with Snapshot technology and SnapVault

    -- Using SnapShot differencing
