Error when cloning 8.2RC1 &-Mode Simulator

I was able to create an operational 8.2RC1 &-Mode simulator however when I attempt to power up a clone of the working sim, I get the following error:

An error was received from the ESX host while powering on VM 7M821RC141.

Unable to find a slot for PCI bridge #0. Remove devices occupying the primary PCI bus from the virtual machine.

Any ideas ?

The NetApp supplied VMX file is 'quirky' at best. You can try uploading it again from the original archive, or search my recent posts for how to build a clean one from scratch.

Then remember you'll have some work to do to if you plan on running multiple instances with different sysids.

Hi,

I've faced same issue;
I've removed setting: pciBridge0.present = "true"

from first line of VMX file and VM was able to power on.

Thank you removing pciBridge0.present = "true" worked for me.
