Re: 8.3.1. simulator


Until 8.3.1 gets posted just install with 8.3 and do an upgrade.

Ask for help, Do you know 8.3.1 ova format simulator required minimum memory Settings?

Re: 8.3.1. simulator


Since 8.3 is the most recent one all I would suggest is you follow the 8.3 specs and add a little more 'fat' to the simulator:


Hardware requirements

  • Dual core 64-bit Intel® architecture laptop or desktop
  • Simulate ONTAP 8.3 or higher:
    • Laptop: 5 GB RAM for one instance, 10 GB RAM for two instances.
    • VMware ESX: 8 GB RAM for one instance, 16 GB RAM for two instances.
  • Simulate ONTAP 8.2.x or lower: 2 GB RAM for one instance, 3 GB for two instances.
  • 40 GB free disk space per instance of simulator
  • Hosts running a 32-bit OS require VT support for Intel® based systems or AMD-V (SVM) for AMD® based systems. The feature must also be enabled in the BIOS if not enabled by default.
  • VT support for Intel® based systems

Re: 8.3.1. simulator


They were both built using the same serials as the 8.3 OVAs: 4082368507 and 4082368511, and both are in the published 8.3.x key set.  Are you seeing something different?
