Mounting Snapshot to use in a test lab


I have a production volume that has volume protection on it and I had scheduled it to run once a day.  I would like to take the lastest snaphot and mount that to another VM in my test lab.  I can do this manually, but I would like to have it done automatically for me.  I called Nimble support and they told me yes, that can be done, but I have to use Rest API with Powershell.  They also told me to look for it in the Info Site, which I did and nothing jumped out that what I'm looking for.  I been googling the Net for example of the Rest API and I found tons of stuff, but nothing that I can use.  I am not scriptor and know anything scripting.  I came here hoping to find more info on what I'm trying to do or even possible.

Please help.

Thank you in advance!!

Have a search on this forum for Powershell - there's a fair few scripts here that will do what you want.
