Data Ontap Simulator 8.2.1 installation Error


Hi All,

I have created a new Virtual machine for DataOntap Simulator in VMware vSphere. I received the following error message when the virtual machine was powered On

"An error was received from the ESX host while powering on VM DataONTAP_Simultor.
Cannot open the disk '/vmfs/volumes/51597c77-1b8a3a40-1f56-001ec9d959fd/vsim_esx-cm/DataONTAP-sim.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.
Failed to lock the file"

Please help me to sort out this problem also let me know the cause of the problem.

Thanks in advance.
