Re: ONTAP 9.3 Simulator


Sad to report...maybe the dots are not going across the screen like 9.3, but 9.4 cannot even get past starting cluster services. ...It just sits there......doing nothing all the while disk drives have the odd green flashing something is going on, but whatever it is has nothing to do with management ot creating a cluster.


Even after I have zero'd the disks, entered Node IP....then go to create the response from this sim. Black Hole.


9.4 is no better than 9.3. 


I am giving up.....wasted far to much time on this already for no reaqson other than to be frustrated.
