Has anyone attempted to run any version of the ONTAP simulator on an ANTSLE box?
Looks like it would be a great lab box if it works. They do have their own hypervisor. They claim they can pull in vmdk's but I think anyone who has tried to convert the simulator to hyper-v knows that doesn't mean it will work.
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

It could be a bit tricky due to the advanced networking and disk configuration for the VSIM - if it's going to fail on anything, it would be that - I personally run an ONTAP sim on an Intel NUC7i5BNH running VMWare. Very easy setup.

I thought about the Intel nuc but thought it wouldn't be powerful enough. I had alot of problems in the past with a 5 year old AMD computer turned esxi server. The hosts we're resource contrained all the time. I thought I would need to go to something with a good xeon processor. I'll give the nuc a try.

Antsle is built on KVM. I've tried a few times to bring it up on KVM without success.
I have had plenty of success running them on assorted intel NUCs. Even i3 NUCs will work given sufficient ram and SSD/NVME.
