Absolutely! You can use NetApp XCP to copy files from NetApp 7 Mode to a server. It's a magical experience! Just follow these steps:

  1. Prepare your NetApp 7 Mode system with the right permissions.
  2. Install NetApp XCP on your server.

The syntax to copy to a local file system is file (followed by a colon and 2 slashes)  followed by the path.  That said, l haven't been able to make this work.  I just get an error "xcp: ERROR: batch 1: memoryview: underlying buffer is not writable" on a RHEL8 system after 300 or so files are written (out of 25k).

SOURCEPATH and TARGETPATH
  sourcePath is the path to be copied to the path targetPath. They can be of following type:
   1. NFS export path:
      IP:<export>[:subdirectory]
    example: 127.0.0.1:/home/demo1 or 10.234.236.11,10.234.236.16:/home/demo1
   2. POSIX path:
      file://<path> where path is locally mounted NFS path
    example: file:///mnt/src
   3. HDFS path:
      hdfs://<path> where path is on a HDFS file system
    example: hdfs:///demo1/src
