TSM and NetApp – Quick Hint

Well, to save everyone else the trouble (since it isn’t documented anywhere – and I just spent about an hour finding the cause for this), if you need to configure NDMP on your NetApp Filer, make sure you also configure an interface other than e0M.

Apparently the necessary controlport for NDMP (10000) is being blocked on e0M, thus ndmp may be configured and running, however TSM is gonna complain that it is unable to connect to the specified data mover.
