I do have experience with 7-mode systems, and want to try new ONTAP 8.1 c-mode. I'm noobie with c-mode and c-mode simulator.
I think I lack simulator and c-mode setup knowledge. Unfortunately Simulator docs explain how to startup simulator itself, but send me to ONTAP docs to setup the system. Still don't know how to add more disks to Simulator for example.
I installed ESX version of 8.1 c-mode simulator - i.e. two virtual machines = two nodes. Created a new cluster and added the second node to the cluster. Will this config work with simulator and no HA pairs?
1. I don't see aggregates: disk show shows me aggr0 on both nodes, but aggr show returns an empty list.
There are no usual 7-mode commands there are Cluster-Mode commands. The simulator is shutdown right now so I can't tell you the command precisely. There is a command for creating a cluster and adding nodes to cluster. There should be one cluster with several nodes in it, not several clusters.
By the way try http/https to node address there is some kind of WEB interface.
