okay.. then I am curious how it works.. my hosting vendor told me this is a netapp filer and they manage it.  It's mapped to every windows server and I see shadow copies there..

Actually this is not true.  Netapp using cifs and once the directory shared windows sees that with shadow copies created.  So not need a windows file server to have shadow copies.
