Re: netapp sim cant contact from host??

Have you checked the NIC settings with VMWare and that its enabled. The host should be able to ping the SIM. Have you checked the RC file of the sim and ifconfig, to check that the IP and Subnet are set ok. Your default route should be 192.168.0.1 as well.

Sounds like a local host network/routing issue. Good stuff its working
