I know this has been brought up before but I'm asking NetApp to please consider adding KVM virtualization for their ontap simulator. Please put this on your roadmap, if not officially in some unofficial community supported manner.
I know You are asking about tech support, but you can try ONTAP Select. There is no ONTAP simulator image for RedHat KVM, but there is ONTAP Select which is officially supported on RedHat Linux with KVM. ONTAP Select can run on a built-in trial license for 90 days, and then you need to reinstall ONTAP Select.
Since ONTAP Simulator & ONTAP Select sharing big about of the same source code, you should convert virtual machine with the simulator and try to run it in KVM; maybe it is gonna work.
It's been a while since I last attempted it, but from what I recall I got the sim to boot, but it didn't have any working network adapters. I got to about the same point on hyper-v. It does work in VirtualBox though, so thats an alternative. Select on KVM does work fine. A few difference of note are:
In Select, commands that don't work (like FC commands) are disabled. In vSim you can use them, they just don't do anything.
In Select, you can't simulate aggrs of different disk types. It's either all vmdisk or ssd depending on how you deploy it.
In Select, your lab implodes every 90 days.
Select also needs significantly more resources than vSim. vSim runs fine of ~5gb ram and 2 vCPU cores. Select needs minimum 16gb and 4 cores, and goes up from there if you want to put it on SSD, plus some additional resources for the deploy VM.
But if you can swing the additional resources and don't mind the periodic total rebuild, its a good alternative.
