Im not sure what you are trying to do, but you should be using Netapp's Powershell Toolkit

You should be doing this via powershell and dumping to a webpage or archive.. Every ten minutes is overkill IMHO..

can we do via batch file ?

Sure if you use rsh and open up host.equiv (unsecure)

You're not listening.. Focus on powershell, that's the direction that Netapp is going.. It's very simple.

as already said, try powershell.

if you really need a classic batch file, then I suggest using plink.exe from putty.

this would look something like that:

plink.exe user@filer snapmirror status >output.txt
