I managed to get evaluation template DataONTAPv-esx-standalone.ova for single node cluster and i was able to bypass the ontap deploy as i had to deploy ontap select on nfs datastore, during the initial setup it asks for the base key and i just pressed enter key.
It installs perfectly but when i create SVM all the protocol services are disabled and i believe that this is a license issue, somebody tell me what should be used for the base key during the initial setup.
Reason why i bypassed ontap deploy utility is that they dont support only vmfs formats.

I'm not an expert, but the PDF " ONTAP Select 9 Release Notes page 6 states:
When deploying the nodes and cluster, you should use the ONTAP Select Deploy
administration utility as follows:
Do not supply a serial number for the node as part of configuring the host
Create the cluster with the evaluation flag set (--eval)
did you try that yet?
