EMC FileMover API Reference Guide

Abstract

This document describes the EMC VNX® FileMover Application Programming Interface (API) service provided by the Data Mover. The FileMover API is provided in addition to the standard CIFS and NFS protocols. This API provides additional services for the Policy/Migration software (P/M) that would otherwise be unavailable. The most important services are putting a file offline after copying it to secondary storage, and querying a file’s status to determine if it is online or offline.
