NDMP CAB extension APIs


Hello, I'm looking for some info about NDMP CAB extension APIs. Where and how can I get some more detailed know-how, besides just some very high level definitions? I am a developer and my customer would like to investigate options to enhance their product. It is already capable of doing NDMP operations for 7-mode, but adding CAB is a necessity, I think.

Hi Eugene,

thank you for your reply. In the NDMP standard there are some general descriptions about  Server extensions and Proprietary vs. Standard Extensions. No mention of CAB extension, which is a propriteray NetApp and some more further details on that is what I'm looking for. Or Am I missing something?
