NetApp Simulator and SCVMM 2012 RC


Has anyone had success using the OnTAP Simulator with System Center Virtual Machine Manage 2012 RC?

I've been playing around with the new process of adding providers and have continued to run into problems managing storage pools. After adding the storage provider to VMM, I am unable to add classifications, and manage any storage pools. The odd thing is, the same simulator setup works if I use SCVMM 2012 BETA.

Upon adding the provider, I receive an error code within SCVMM: HostTypeNotSupported. If I view the properties of the properties and try again, the error changes to "NO PARAM: NO PARAM."

I am currenly trying to use:

    SCVMM2012 RC Build 3.0.5007.0

    OnTAPSMI-S Agent 4.0

    NetApp OnTAPSimulator 7.3.6

I can't seem to find anyone with any insight as to why this might have broke between versions of SCVMM 2012.

Any input is appreciated!



If SCVMM is running on then restart Microsoft Storage Management Service. This service communicates with SMIS providers. Let me know if this helps.
