Restore Data from Windows 2003 file server to Netapp FAS2050 Via NDMP

I am migrating data from a Windows 2003 R2 file server to a FAS2050. I have Netbackup 7.01 installed with the NDMP client. I know you can not restore from MS windows backup to NDMP backup as its the wrong protocol. Is there an NDMP emulator that can be run on the Windows 2003 server or can anyone suggest a better way of moving the data from the Windows 2003 file server to the Netapp box?

Thanks in advance

Why make it hard on yourself.

It normally use robocopy to accompish this task.  Run the bulk job during the day, it shouldn't affect any users (choose zero for retries and wait time, it will skip any open files for now).  During the cutover run a robocopy with a /MIR switch to copy over the changes and you're done.

This was my back up plan as there is not easy way to restore the data using tape.

Thanks for the response
