ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

system services ndmp service modify

Modify NDMP service configuration

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.


The system services ndmp service modify command allows you to modify the NDMP service configurations for a node in the cluster. The following configuration can be modified:

  • NDMP Common Sessions


-node {<nodename>|local} - Node

This specifies the node whose NDMP configuration is to be modified.

[-common-sessions <integer>] - NDMP Common Sessions

This optional parameter specifies the number of extra common NDMP sessions supported, in addition to the number of backup and restore sessions supported for a platform. The default value is 4 for all platforms. The number of backup and restore sessions are platform dependent.

Increasing this parameter can make the storage system unresponsive.


The following example modifies the NDMP configuration on a node named node1. The configuration sets the NDMP Common Sessions to 16:

cluster1::> system services ndmp modify -node node1
     -common-sessions 16
