Netapp simulator 9.5 configuration backup and restore

mjgratke

I am looking for a way to save the current simulator configuration and then redeploy OVA of simulator and "restore" the original configuration for a new test cycle.   

 

Is this possible?    I don't want to use VMware to achieve this.

Hi, 

 

I do that a lot for my development and test environment. In my case using powershell, ansible or any automation mechanism is more convenient. To accomplish the goal, I use automation to destroy and recreate the lab using an ansible template.

 

A more basic example would be to use NetApp Powershell Toolkit together with VMware PowerCLI to recreate the lab environment.

 

Hope this helps!
