Is there an easy way to restore data from a netapp filer to an alternate system such as a Windows system.  I have a few volume sthat are part of a cascading relationship primary to mirror to snapvault secondary.  I want to restore the data in one of the volumes to a Windows system.  I was looking at a various options if snapvault could do it, if OSSV is an option.  I want to use somehting other than if possible robocopy or terracopy via a cif share mount.  Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

If going to windows robocopy and the like are your best bet.  You could possible do a backup/restore using NDMP

How could I make use of NDMP to a WIndows server from the netapp?  I've used NDMP to copy luns and volumes within a netapp before.

if you have a backup software such as backup exec, netbackup, commvault, etc.. you could take an ndmp backup and perform a redirected restore

We do have backupexec but I thought redirected restore could only occurr to another NDMP device such as another netapp .  I thought it wasn't supported to a Windows server for example.

Check out Commvault, we've been able to do re-directed restores with it, I believe you can do this with Backup Exec as well

According to page 1867 of the Backup Exec 2010 Admin guide a NDMP restore canot be redirected to aWindows or Linux computer.  A NDMP backup can only be redirected to another NDMP server from the same vendor.
