The subject of this thread covers what I'm looking for. If we don't have a date, can anyone at least advise if imminent or a long way off?
I've just attempted an upgrade from a vsim running 8.2.2P1 to 8.3RC1 but it wasn't sucessfull. Tried zeroing all disks but seem to get disk errors after the zeroing completes.
Something has changed in the fake nvram implementation. full/partner/panic works, just not fake. And it needs more ram than 8.2.x did. Hoping we'll get an official vsim soon. The upgrade is bumpy.
We just got an email from NetApp in which they say they will try to have a 8.3 simulator ready by the end of this coming week (around friday Nov 21)
Any news yet?
Any updates here? The silence is deafening...
Someone at NetApp told me, that the ONTAP 8.3 Sim will probably come with the GA of the regular 8.3 DOT (hope not).
Hope not. Its been rev'd for RCs in the past.
Upgrade from 8.2.1 to 8.2.2P1 works without problems. 8.2.2P1 to 8.3RC1 fails. So c'mon NetApp give me my 8.3 sim.
As we have already started talking about 8.3 feaures, it would really be good to have an 8.3 simulator to try and demo them...
Where is this?! We REALLY need it to hit ASAP.
Heard through the grapevine that an RC2 is being planned for 8.3 - which might also explain why no SIM yet...
It's available now
