 @virals ,

First check connectivity between the backup server and the filers. Incase everything seems OK. Try configuring the client instance manually and test a backup.

Have you configured the user for NDMP on your VNX control station?

You need to create a user for NDMP using MD5 password encryption to allow any backup application to run backups.
