8.3 Simulator NFS VaaI Support

I couldn't find any information on the web about Vaai support on the NetApp Ontap simulators.
In my vLab i have singel node installed with a NFS export to a vSphere 6.0 farm. All the ESXi servers have de NFS VaaI plugin installed, but on the datastore "Hardware Acceleration" is still not supported. 
Does anyone know if Vaai is support/availible on a 8.3 simulator?

It works, but you have to enable it on the SVM.  Then remount the datastore or bounce the host.

Thank you for the reply. Any change you know how to enable it?

This will list all the vservers and tell you which ones have it disabled:

 

vserver nfs show -fields vstorage

 

Then turn it on where appropriate:

 

vserver nfs mod -vstorage enabled -vserver <vserver name>
