problem : New Netapp share cannot be seen by backup exec, backup Exec version 2010 R2 cannot connect to  NetApp ONTAP Version 8.12 cannot see the shares "can't establish a connection to the server" will be the error on the backup exec 2010 R2


Solution:

1)  enabled the "Enable selection of user shares" in the BE options.

2) test if not working still  ..proceed to 3

3)Change the port number of RAWS on media server. i.e, In C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\services file, add an entry like below and check selection.
NDMP 12000/tcp #BE remote agent
i added this ndmp line to the bottom of the services file, and now i can browse the new netapp
