NetApp Filers

HI All,

Is there any way to get the physical path of all the files in NetApp Filers. I need to give that path to my backup guy to get the backup from Netbackup.
Moreover is there any way to take the backup of the data through Netapp?

if it's on cifs or nfs you can use native linux or windows tools to scan the file folders if you don't have that many shares/exports.

What type of backups/restores are you performing?

It is CIFS.

Do we have command line for pulling up Physical path of all data in the filers?

you can connect via command prompt just as you do on a normal windows file share and do something like

dir /s /b /o:gn

I think this is overkill.  If a file is deleted the end user should know where it was deleted and you should be able to browse to the snapshot folder and go to the folder it was deleted from to copy from snapshot and paste back to the original location
