Restoring to a Windows or UNIX Client

You can restore NDMP data to a Windows or UNIX client computer from the following file servers:

  • Hitachi NAS (BlueArc)
  • NetApp
  • Dell EMC PowerStore, Dell EMC Unity, Dell EMC VNX / Celerra, and Dell EMC VNXe
  • Dell EMC Isilon/PowerScale

In order to restore data to a Windows or UNIX client, ensure that the appropriate File System agent is installed on the computer where you want the data to be restored.
