ONTAP 9 Simulator: cannot access the GUI

sevenval
I am trying to run the ONTAP 9 Simulator but I cannot access the GUI. I will provide you all the details.
Virtualizer: VMWare Fusion 12.1.0
ONTAP: vsim-netapp-DOT9.7-cm_nodar.ova
 
I have followed what is explained in this guide https://community.netapp.com/fukiw75442/attachments/fukiw75442/simulator-discussions/2079/1/ONTAP-Sim-Getting_Started_Quick_v10.pdf but when I enter the username and password I am told that the credentials are not correct.
Here are the steps I followed:
* Import the ova in VMWare
* The VM boot and as described by the guide, I press CTRL-C in order to get the the boot menu
* At the boot menu I select the Option 4 "Clean configuration and initialize all disks"
* During the reset process no errors are reported, the VM boot again and I am asked to enter the following parameters:
IP: 192.168.77.10(as described in the guide I look with ifconfig at the vmnet8 interface)
Netmask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.77.2
Then comes that the rest of the config can also be finalized at https://192.168.77.10, but with the admin default credentials (https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1148877/html/GUID-3954F916-F50C-4A41-83AB-61BE1C38854B.html#:~:text=You%20should%20be%20logged%20in,the%20passw...) I cannot go on, so I continue the configuration on the Console with:
* create cluster
* single node cluster
* set admin cluster node password
* cluster name
* Additional License Key (according to the instructions it can be left empty)
* domain name (according to the instructions it can be left empty)
* Where is the controller located (according to the instructions it can be left empty)
* system config backup (according to the instructions it can be left empty)
Then on the screen it is reported that the GUI can be accessed at https://192.168.77.10, so I give admin as username and the password that I have just created but no way to get into the GUI.
With the credentials that I created I can log into the Console and per SSH but not into the GUI. 
With security login show I can see that the admin user can authenticate over all the protocols (see screenshot).
I have tried to set up another user, with admin role and authentication over HTTP + SSH + ONTAPI + CONSOLE but the result is always the same, Console and SSH is ok but the GUI not.
I also tried to set the License Key as described on the guide, everything works as described until the moment where I want to log into the GUI, here I always get "Login failed verify username and password".
Could you please provide some advice/idea?
Kind Regards, 
Davide Motti

Did you see the note on page 16:

 

NOTE: Be aware this guide mixes examples of the VMnet8 on different subnets (192.168.23.0 above, 17.0 later on, etc)

 

Are you using IP space suitable to your environment? The screenshot you provided isn't much help, at the same prompt can you please type "net int show" and provide the output of that?

Re: ONTAP 9 Simulator: cannot access the GUI

Hi, thank you for your answer but sorry what is the relationship between ip environment and not being able to log in to the GUI?
I don't think the network configuration has anything to do with the problem described above: I can access the GUI in the Browser without any problems, the problem is that I can't log in either with the default user or with other users that I have created after logging in from the CLI.

Re: ONTAP 9 Simulator: cannot access the GUI

CHRISMAKI

Sorry for misunderstanding, but you literally started your original post with "cannot access the GUI". 

 

Looking at your screenshot, that's a Cisco web page, not the ONTAP Cluster login. Please provide the previously requested output, or find out what IP the cluster_mgmt LIF is on, and try that instead.

Re: ONTAP 9 Simulator: cannot access the GUI

sevenval

Hi, thank you for the answer.

The Gui that I try to reach is the GUI that ONTAP Install suggest to open in order to complete the setup (http://192.168.77.10).

The network configuration is setup as described on ONTAP-Sim-Getting_Started_Quick:

IP from vmnet8: 192.168.77.10

Netmask: 255.255.255.0

Gateway: 192.168.77.2

Screenshot 2021-01-05 at 15.25.52.png

But with username: admin and pwd: netapp!123 as in your guide described it says that the credentials are not correct:

Screenshot 2021-01-05 at 15.27.45.png

However with this credentials I am able to log into the CLI:

Screenshot 2021-01-05 at 15.32.00.png 

And this ist the output of the command that you requested:

Screenshot 2021-01-05 at 15.32.56.png

 

P.S. I started my post with "cannot access the GUI" because this is my problem, I cannot access/log into the GUI. Over the CLI I can create users, cluster and so on, but I am not able to log into the GUI.

Thanks in advance.

Re: ONTAP 9 Simulator: cannot access the GUI

The IP space you're using is conflicting with existing IP allocation in your environment as the GUI presented is for the out of band management interface of some Cisco server. Also, I see .11, the cluster_mgmt LIF is hosted on e0a whereas .10, node_mgmt is on e0c. Typically under Fusion, both e0a and e0b are used for ClusterNet and the Fusion setting would be "host-only" and e0c/e0d are used for client access and by default set to "NAT" in Fusion. The CLI you're logging into is effectively the serial port of the simulator so IP addresses don't come into play. You likely can't ssh to either IP either because they're probably both assigned to external servers. I'd recommend changing IP spaces completely, try moving to 10.0.0.0/24. In the console, type:

 

net int modify -vserver ontap-test -lif  cluster_mgmt -address 10.0.0.50 -netmask 255.255.255.0

net int modify -vserver ontap-test -lif  ontap-test-01_mgmt1 -address 10.0.0.51 -netmask 255.255.255.0

 

Then in Fusion, make sure e0a/e0b is set to host-only and e0c/e0d is set to NAT, I use Bridged here so that I can access the simulator from other hosts as well, not just my laptop. Try connecting via https to either of the new IP addresses as well as ssh. I'm not sure why your cluster_mgmt is on e0a, but I assume it's because you set it to a single-node cluster, I don't do this specifically because I want the ClusterNet interfaces to still exist for better screenshots. Then you should be able to hit https://10.0.0.50/ and login.

Thank you for the instructions, but with this settings when I call https://10.0.0.50  in my browser no service/GUI is reachable.

It is not clear to me why should I use 10.0.0.0/24 space. As described on the official Docs it should be this provided by the vmnet8 adapter:

Screenshot 2021-01-06 at 13.27.07.png

And the through the cluster management Ip it should be possible connect via ssh or https:

Screenshot 2021-01-06 at 13.27.24.png

This is how the network configuration looks like (the Fusion settings are as you described):

Re: ONTAP 9 Simulator: cannot access the GUI

CHRISMAKI

Can you also provide the output of "ifconfig -a" from your Mac please?

Re: ONTAP 9 Simulator: cannot access the GUI

CHRISMAKI

Also, what happens when you try to ping those two addresses?

Not pingable (Request Timeout).

Hi there, I wrote this post for you. I believe by your username that you're in Germany and the time difference makes troubleshooting onerous. Also, I will be unavailable for a few days now. Kindly let me know if it helps.
