Ontap 9.7 simulator UI access


Hello Team,

We have installed Ontap 9.7 simulator ova. Created two node cluster setup and we are trying to access UI using url
http://<cluster management ip> but UI is inaccessible. Also tried installing System manager software 3.1.3. but no success to load ui. Could you pls check and share steps if changed for 9.7 ?


  • You will have to set up the system with the (vmware) console during the first start to create/define management IP addresses
  • Make sure, the ports are in the correct subnets (I'm on VMware workstation and had to correct it sometimes)
  • Use HTTPS and accept warnings to connect despite self-signed certificates
  • Do not use the System Manager sofftware! It's only for ancient pre-8.3 systems.


Hope you are trying https?

Yes we have tried both http and https but it is not working.
