This is really more of a VMware question than NetApp simulator question but I wanted to ask here and see if anyone else sees or notices this.
I've been using simulator for years un OS X Fusion but more recently on ESX and vCenter. I've got a pretty new ESX/vCenter 6.0 (single ESX node cluster) running on a box. I'm trying to use the newer VMware Web Client as much as possible but end up falling back to the Windows vCenter Client when I have to. I think the NetApp simulator (I've playing with 8.3.2 lately) even says explicitly to use the vCenter Client app when doing the Deploy OVF function. So I have been doing that (using the app) ... but I notice after I go to the console tab after powering-up the VM and do the maint-mode 4 option, it says it's going down but I never see anything else after that (the expected reboot and series of ........ dots).
So I launch the vSphere Web Client, go to this new simulator VM I'm init'ing, use the new 'Launch Remote Console' windows and presto, there it is "........" doting it's little heart out.
Anyone esee seeing this? Am I missing a key concept? Is there a way to do all this from the web-client anyway?
PS: I guess the other piece of data is I've tried to "Deploy OVF" from the web-client but it warns me "The Client Integration Plug-In must be installed ..." which I've already done but it insists I haven't.
