Hi,

I got this error first ...

Cannot open the disk '/vmfs/volumes/<id>/vsim-DOT811-7m/DataONTAP-sim.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

The system cannot find the file specified

VMware ESX cannot find the virtual disk "/vmfs/volumes/<id>/vsim-DOT811-7m/DataONTAP-sim.vmdk". Verify the path is valid and try again.

I rectified it using the solutions

load vmkload_mod multiextent 

then use Vcenter converter to convert the vsim-DOT812-7m into my vcenter.

It worked and I a mable to Power On.

Problem:

Now the licenses given on the simulator page is not working and it is saying Invalid. Any solutions pls....
