It will be very useful that NetBackup could detect which drive letters are assigned to a file server instance.

Now we must specify them in the policy but when a new one is added in the instance the policy must be adapted. It will be easier to specify to NetBackup the instance name and NetBackup communicates with MS Cluster to determine which drive letters are members of the instance.

Does Microsoft provide an API for 3rd party software to communicate with it and determine cluster configuration, drives part of cluster resources, etc ?

If not you're putting the cart in front of the horse - get Microsoft to create the API first and then talk with Symantec once it gets implemented.
