Add second node to 8.3.2 simulator

I downloaded 8.3.2 simulator and sucessfully created the first node, but when I tried to initialze the second node it fails with the following message:

 

PANIC: Can't find device with WWN 0x117715456. Rmeove '/sim/dev/,disks/,reservations' and restart.

 

I already changed the 2nd node sysid:

 

4. Change the Serial Number and System ID for this node:
VLOADER> setenv SYS_SERIAL_NUM 4034389-06-2

VLOADER> setenv bootarg.nvram.sysid 4034389062
5. Verify that the information was saved correctly:
VLOADER> printenv SYS_SERIAL_NUM VLOADER> printenv bootarg.nvram.sysid

This usually mean you didn't change the sysid on the very first boot.  Once it's boot looped, you need to clear the reservations file.

 

Reboot, and CTRL-C to bring up the boot menu

*******************************
*                             *
* Press Ctrl-C for Boot Menu. *
*                             *
*******************************  	
^CBoot Menu will be available.

 

 

From the bootmenu, enter the systemshell:

Please choose one of the following:

(1) Normal Boot.
(2) Boot without /etc/rc.
(3) Change password.
(4) Clean configuration and initialize all disks.
(5) Maintenance mode boot.
(6) Update flash from backup config.
(7) Install new software first.
(8) Reboot node.
Selection (1-8)? systemshell
Forking /bin/sh 
pid: 1062
# 

 

From the systemshell, remove the reservations file

# rm /sim/dev/,disks/,reservations

Exit back to the boot menu:

# exit

And pick option 8 to reboot the simulator

Please choose one of the following:

(1) Normal Boot.
(2) Boot without /etc/rc.
(3) Change password.
(4) Clean configuration and initialize all disks.
(5) Maintenance mode boot.
(6) Update flash from backup config.
(7) Install new software first.
(8) Reboot node.
Selection (1-8)? 8

Reboot now? (y or n): y

If you are prompted about a sysid mismatch during boot, pick Y.

 

If you had already assigned disks, go into maintenance mode and reassign them to the new sysid.

 

That should get it going.
