This document refers to an SMI-S API being available on the HDS website but I can't see any mention of it.

"Hitachi, Ltd., and Hitachi Data Systems are the only vendors that create code that talks directly to Hitachi storage
systems. In order for other vendors to query or manage a Hitachi storage system, they need to interface with
Device Manager software using either an API or CLI interface.
Two APIs are supported by Device Manager software for such third-party ISV integration. The standard interface is
the SNIA-conformant SMI-S CIM API. Documentation for this is available on the www.hds.com Web site, and
there are no licensing agreements needed to use the API."

Could anyone who knows where this is post up a link to it?

Thanks
Ben
