Using CommVault to backup a NAS without NDMP

Hello,
We have CommVault Simpana 9.0.0 build 84 currently installed and configured on our backup server that is equipped with both a magnetic array and a tape library. I am trying to find a way to backup one of our Buffalo TeraStation TS-RX400TL NAS devices (firmware 1.50) using the NAS iDataAgent or by some other means that does not require another computer with a CommVault agent to sit in between the Buffalo TeraStation NAS and the CommVault. Everything that I am reading in the Books Online (9.0.0) website and in the books Common Technology Engine and CommVault Storage Policies seems to point me in the direction of configuring NDMP (Network Data Management Protocol) settings for the NAS iDataAgent in the CommCell or on a computer with the NAS iDataAgent sitting in between the CommVault and the PSTNAS. Is there a way to do this with a NAS that does not support NDMP? We were sold on the fact that the CommVault can do this when we purchased the solution, but how to specifically configure this since it wasn’t done during our initial configuration is what has been eluding me.
Thanks!

Noting that you don't want an addtional computer to sit in between, I guess you could potentially install a FileSystem iDataAgent on your MediaAgent, and configure it to point the UNC paths of your NAS?

Thanks for the advice. Because of your direction, we were able to figure out how to add the UNC path for the NAS to an agent used on another server.
