Cannot add the NetApp simulator into the Oncommand system manager

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

 

I'm new to NetApp simulator and in the learning phase .I followed this document https://community.netapp.com/fukiw75442/attachments/fukiw75442/developer-network-articles-and-resources/112/1/Simulate+ONTAP+8.2+Step-by-Step+Installa... to install and configured netapp simulator (8.3.2) in vSphere Client, created a single node cluster in the simulator & created a virtual machine (Win7) on vsphere and installed Oncommand System manager (3.1.2) in there as well. After I complete those steps I was able to ping to my netapp simulator from my virtual machine and vice versa,

But when i try to add my netapp simulator to the Oncommand system manger it won't allow me to do so. There was an error message saying *Invalid or incomplete XML received due to communication error or character encoding errors" & also when I type the cluster IP in the web Brower (IE8) it shows me a blank window with an url https://cluster ip /sysmgr/sysmgr.html certification error. Can you give me an idea what I might done wrong in here & how to fix it?


Regards,

Kush

Re: Cannot add the NetApp simulator into the Oncommand system manager

I would focus on getting system manager on the box to run first, before installing the external one.

 

Did you try another browser?

Hi yannb , Sorry for the late reply . Yes I tried firefox 50.0 and i still can't access the NetApp simulator from there as well
