To test FSCTL_RECALL_FILE, see the client application available at:

With the patches applied on the server side, ensure fs_capabilities

The SMB_VFS_OP_RECALL_OFFLINE handler will then be called when the server
receives a FSCTL_RECALL_FILE nttrans and the file is flagged as offline.

If you wan't to test it with a DMAPI based HSM i'd recommend having a
play with sample_hsm found in the XFS cmds tree.

Cheers, Dave
