NetApp Simulator

Hi, I've just recently started a NetApp NCSA course and have signed up to the NetApp site so I can gain access to the NetApp Simulator.  However, when I go to the download page I get an error and it tells me I am not authorised to access that page.

Can anyone help?  Because I don't own any NetApp products am I not allowed to download the simulator?

Re: NetApp Simulator

Hi Nick,

essentially: Yes.

As a 'Guest' you don't have access to the simulator, as a 'Customer'/'Partner'/'Employee' you do.

=> You might want to talk to a NetApp representative (e.g. your NetApp contact as you might be a 'future customer'), they might be able to do something about your access and/or might get you a simulator copy 'offline'...

Hope that helps

Welly -

Create an NFS volume or iSCSI LUN and mount it from your ESX host.

You may want to read through the Express Guides library for additional help.

I hope this response has been helpful to you.
