Re: Download 9.4 simulator

Hi,

 

Looks like only latest 3 Simulator Images are available -9.7,9.6 & 9.5.  NetApp site has been upgraded recently, so the old link now automatically re-directs to the new tools url, but I am not sure if it's possible to access old URL.

 

Anyway,  any reason for Ontap 9.4 Simulator ? Are you trying to test any scenario specific to Ontap 9.4 ?

 

You can try this workaround:
1) Install 9.5 Simulator image.
2) Download 9.4 Production Image.
https://mysupport.netapp.com/site/products/all/details/ontap9/downloads-tab/download/62286/9.4/downloads
3) Get the 9.4 Image on the Simulator Node.

4) Follow the standard system node revert-to procedure to downgrade from 9.5 to 9.4.

 

Reverting an ONTAP cluster: (Obviously not all steps apply to Simulator, but the procedure works).

Re: Download 9.4 simulator

For API integration/testing purpose, I guess you will need to install  'Ontap 9.4' simulator  in your environment ? you will need VM player or VMware workstation.

Re: Download 9.4 simulator

Thanks for the reply. I got you . So, you are using NetApp SDK APis directly on the Prod Filer instead of  'Simulator. That's fine!.
