Cluster-Mode SIM with 4 Nodes?


Hi, can I setup a cluster-mode cluster with 4 nodes using the SIM? The License is only for 2 Nodes, but I want to add 4 Nodes to the cluster. thank you, regards Maurice



ok, thank you all!!


The simulator is limited to 2 nodes only but you can built another cluster to perform the snapmirror operations.

thank you,



I don't believe so, as I don't think they provide enough serial numbers for that many systems. Unless there is a trick to increment the fake serial number they give us by 1 for each new node. But honestly, I doubt they would allow something like that in a lab since there isn't a real interconnect, and it's only for testing purposes. Obviously they are trying to limit how far we can go with the Cluster-Mode systems in a lab so we do not try using them in Production. Makes sense.
