I'm new to NetApp so excuse my ignorance.  Is there any way to connect a standard DOS command prompt to manage shares/files hosted on a NetApp device?

Thanks

You can access the controller via SSH or OnCommand System manager, or Windows System manager (for CIFS volumes).  What are you trying to accomplish?

I wanted to know the best method to manage files/folders that are hosted on NetApp via a command prompt.  For example, just doing basic xcopy commands or looking at folder attributes as you would with a traditional DOS command prompt.  We have recently migrated files hosted on a Windows server over to our NetApp.  I know you can manage these files like it's still a Windows server (for the most part), just wasn't sure if you could still use DOS or similar command prompt to manage the files like you would if it was still hosted on a Windows server.

you can still use dos commands for most anything except share permissions on the top level share.  Otherwise you can still use cacls and xcacls and such.
