ONTAP Simulator 9.6 for ESXi Not Found in Toolchest

Greering, everyone.

I checked the Toolchest on the NetApp Support Site, and the two latest ONTAP simulators are 9.6 and 9.5P6. The simulators used to have two editions, one for ESXi and the other for Player, Workstation as well as Fusion. For ONTAP 9.6, only the one for Player, Workstation and Fusion is available. The other one for ESXi is absent. It can be distinguished using the file name of the simulator, for example,

vsim-esx-DOT9.5P6-cm_nodar.ova is for Player, Workstation, and Fusion

vsim-netapp-DOT9.5P6-cm_nodar.ova us for ESXi

Also they have different checksums.

Is there any information for the ONTAP 9.6 simulator for ESXi? Any reply would be appreciated. Thanks.

I forget the Vmware term that is used but it has to do with the underlying disks in the ova. 
I'm sure you can search the forums and find an answer as I know I've seen that before. 

On a mobile device do not searching right now
