ndmpd - Network Data Management Protocol daemon
/usr/lib/ndmpd [-d]
The ndmpd daemon handles client Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) requests. NDMP is an open, enterprise-wide, network-based data man- agement protocol used for backup and recovery. The ndmpd daemon enables users to manage data backup and recovery using Data Management Application (DMA) clients. The NDMP protocol is used to coordinate data movement and control between a DMA and an NDMP server or between two NDMP servers. By default, ndmpd is disabled.
The following option is supported: -d Debugging mode; log file will be created.
0 Successful completion. 1 An error occurred that prevented the ndmpd daemon from initializing, such as failure to fork a process, mutex initialization. 2 Invalid command-line options were specified.
