Is there a 7-Mode simulator still available, in particular one with 8.2.5P4? I have a handful of 7-mode systems left and would like to still have a test system if needed, but would need P4 to mitigate the netlogon issue that will occur in February.
Solved! See The Solution
The simulators usually released without patches (P). But An ONTAP upgrade within the simulator usually works on the same base version. So if you have any 8.2.x image - you can likely upgrade it to whatever minor or patch release image you have..
Currently there is only 9.5+ on the Simulate ONTAP page. I was able to find some older links in previous community post that appear to still be working for downloading older vsim images.

You can get the image then do an upgrade to 8.2.5P4. I hope this helps.
I looked at the NetApp support site and found that 8.2 images 8.2.5P4, 8.2.4P6 and 8.2.3P6 are available for download.
Note that the ONTAP8 simulator has now been replaced by ONTAP9.
