Hi all, I'm trying to run the simulator on ESXi 5.1U1.
The pb is the filer do not see its disks. I tried
- without files modifications, just enterring : vmkload_mod multiextent, adding to Vsphere inventory, then start.
- with files modification using theses commands, then adding VM to Vsphere inventory, then start, as stated here : http://community.netapp.com/t5/Simulator-Discussions/ONTAP-Simulator-Fixes-MEGA-Thread/td-p/11213
vmkfstools -i DataONTAP-sim.vmdk DataONTAP-sim-fixed.vmdk -d thin
vmkfstools -i DataONTAP.vmdk DataONTAP-fixed.vmdk -d thin
vmkfstools -U DataONTAP-sim.vmdk
vmkfstools -U DataONTAP.vmdk
vmkfstools -E DataONTAP-sim-fixed.vmdk DataONTAP-sim.vmdk
vmkfstools -E DataONTAP-fixed.vmdk DataONTAP.vmdk
vmkload_mod -u multiextent
See joined pic Does it means this simulator is not compatible with vSphere 5.1 ?
See The Solution
Ctrl-C at the prompt, then option 4 from the menu.

Thank you for this suggestion, but it does not work :
Does it bootloop again after the option 4? (the first reboot is expected).
If so, something happened during init that prevented the simdisks from being created. To confirm, Ctrl-C to the boot menu, then ls /sim/dev/,disks
if the directory is empty, you need to rearm vdevinit at the loader:
Reboot, stopping at the LOADER> prompt, then enter the following:
setenv bootarg.vm.sim.vdevinit "23:14:0,23:14:1"setenv bootarg.sim.vdevinit "23:14:0,23:14:1"
Then Ctr-C, option 4. You should get a reboot, then a wall of dots, then the setup script.
Thanks to all of you.
In fact, after option 4, there is an error, but after reboot, I can see the wall of dots, and the cluster wizard is automatically started.
