Seems to me the OP was specifying backups of TCP/IP to a drive attached
to the backup server.
By TCP/IP, I take this to mean, via a mount, and NOT NDMP......in this
case, a dedicated drive wouldn't be necessary, as it would be backed up
as a filesystem more or less local to the backup server....for true NDMP
backups (drive attachedto NetApp) then a separate drive WOULD be
