CIFS and AS400 backup capabilities

Hello,

We are trying to find out if it is possible to backup the AS400 to a CIFS share on our Datadomain using IBMs BRMS (Backup Recovery Media Services).  

According to Datadomain you should purchase Lazervault, but we are already using IBMs BRMS app to back to tape so we just need to find a way to get BRMS to see the CIFS share.  Anyone know if its possible?  I have already checked the BRMS admin guide.

Pre-V5R3, you can save to one or more save files, then copy those save files (binary mode) using FTP.

V5R3 and later, you can use Virtual Tape support to create Virtual Volumes.  I know that you can create virtual volumes in the IFS and then copy them to a CIFS share, but I don't know if you can create them directly on the QNTC file system.  Here's the Redbook that explains how to use Virtual Tape with BRMS:

Found that we will need a 3rd party software in order to backup to datadomain.
