i tried to get the ovf running on my mac with Fusion, but it always stucks on applying the customized ip settings.
- at first it failed to get an IP Address via dhcp
- if i try to change ip settings with the command 2
changing the parameters for my environment
it fail on applying the settings, because it is not reachable on configured IP
if i check the Interface IP Settings (eth0) shows a configuration without Network, Gateway and DNS Nameserver
Then i used the Options 2) Changing IP Address Settings to do the settings again,
Are these settings correct? y

The pending changes made in the maintenance console have been discarded.
during the apply changes process i saw some successful pings getting through, after the error silence again...
wtf is going on in the background, why there is no access to the host itself, looks like the bs script is not properly working !
any idea ??

This would result in an unsupported configuration of OCUM6.X
OCUM 6.X is supported only for VMware ESX deployments
Please refer the latest supported configuration matrix on IMT site (http://mysupport.netapp.com/matrix/)

not very helpful, thank you, but i do not like to go in production with this, so thats not the problem...;(
so why it should not be possible to get this bs vmdk running on fusion, the ontap sim vmdk (okay 8.2) is also usable on fusion.

VMware tools present on VMware ESX server are bit different from VMware tools of VMplayer/Fusion.
HGFS host guest filesystem drivers in VMware tools fails while we bootup the ova
and we also see the networking drivers(vmxnet3) not working with fusion/vmplayers
ocum6.x is supported only on VMware ESX servers today.
there is a plan for alternate installers in upcoming release similar to OCUM 5.x

okay, i think if you want to push CONTAP you should go forward with this, lets wait a while until you are ready to go with this environment
should be not so tricky to respekt this on exporting the vm to the ova ?!

FWIW, I got OCUM 6.0 running under VMware Fusion and also later upgraded to 6.1. I think I hit the same problem trying to change network parameters but in my case it successfully obtained a DHCP address and I've just lived with it that way. Good enough for learning and testing in a Fusion-based lab environment. This ought to a supported option.

6.2 still not available for vmWare Fusion, poooor ;(
whitch tatically decision is behind
- ONTAP 8.3 for fusion
- OCUM 6.x only for ESX
just split brain development ?
-> so that looks like netapp developers are not really working together with the same target !?

bs guys this will also occure on ESX ;( so this is a general issue since many OCUM OVA Versions, still not fixed, poor quality ;((
will always fail with
NOTE: Commit failed due to an unexpected error
sorry, but this is NOT a 6.4P1 Version this is still Beta
and that's the trick ?! why this is not done on the OVA Appliance since the beginning of...
as the customer we do NOT have access to the CLI of the Appliance, so YOU should fix this before.
or just do the hack with the diag user
