I've downloaded the vsim_netapp-7m.tgz and installed it on VMware Workstation 10.
It starts up fine.
I select the Ctrl-C
I select option 4 and go through the erase all data yes yes and then it reboots.
When it finally settles down I get a prompt
please enter the new hostname 
I was expecting a prompt to create a new cluster.
Have I missed something obvious?
See The Solution
You installed the 7mode vsim, so that's the expected behavior.
If you want to create a cluster, use the cluster mode vsim. (file name ends in -Cm)
