Configuring a Subclient for Tape Silvering

Applies To: EMC Celerra running version 5.6 or higher

Tape silvering is the process of shipping a physical copy of the source data to a destination site. This is useful for large file systems as it saves time and resources and also avoids transferring the file system over the network. Refer to the EMC Celerra documentation for more information.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, go to Client Computers > client > NDMP > backup_set.
  2. In the right pane, right-click the subclient, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Content tab, under Backup Content Path, specify the source path of the replication that was created from the Celerra Management Console or command line. Append .ts to the path name. For example, /sourcefs/.ts.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Click OK.
