Mounting recent Snapshots with SDCLI on netbackup backup host for Tape Backups

I'm struggling to grasp the capabilities of the sdcli snap mount command.  My goal here is to mount the LUN from each exchsnap__DBNAME__recent snapshot and cut this to tape for long term storage.  I would really like to be able to mount these from my windows netbackup media server rather than from the exchange server.

A:  Is that possible?

B:  If possible, what's the correct syntax for this?

Here's what I've got so far:

C:\Users\admin_bwing>sdcli snap mount -r petw2010mb01-iscsi -k d -s petnaf02:/vol/mb01pf01/exchsnap__petw2010mb01__recent -d c:\backup\pf

Initializing...Unable to connect to the LUN in Snapshot.

Error: The data area passed to a system call is too small.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Brian

sdcli snap mount -r petw2010mb01 -k d:\pf01 -s exchsnap__petw2010mb01__recent -d c:\backup\pf01\

I needed to call out the mount point on the remote server (bolded above) and just call out the name of the snapshot I wanted to mount (also bolded)
