ETA on 8.3 Sim

Hi,

 

The subject of this thread covers what I'm looking for. If we don't have a date, can anyone at least advise if imminent or a long way off?

 

 

 

Re: ETA on 8.3 Sim

I've just attempted an upgrade from a vsim running 8.2.2P1 to 8.3RC1 but it wasn't sucessfull. Tried zeroing all disks but seem to get disk errors after the zeroing completes.

Something has changed in the fake nvram implementation.  full/partner/panic works, just not fake.    And it needs more ram than 8.2.x did.  Hoping we'll get an official vsim soon.  The upgrade is bumpy.

We just got an email from NetApp in which they say they will try to have a 8.3 simulator ready by the end of this coming week (around friday Nov 21)

Re: ETA on 8.3 Sim

Someone at NetApp told me, that the ONTAP 8.3 Sim will probably come with the GA of the regular 8.3 DOT (hope not).

Re: ETA on 8.3 Sim

In the past SIM versions available for download corresponded to GA releases, so it sounds plausible.

Re: ETA on 8.3 Sim

Hope not.  Its been rev'd for RCs in the past.
