Simulator and AFF personality, anyone?



has anyone ever managed to give a 9.x Sim an AFF personality?

We want to "simulate" e.g. QoS settings (floors)... We're aware, that they won't "work", obviously, but it would be nice to be able to check the GUI and defaults of an AFF system (for training/course development).

Re: Simulator and AFF personality, anyone?

Hi there! I did some looking into this topic, and the internal documentation we have for the simulator, and it doesn't seem it is possible unfortunately. The only simulated SSDs are 500MB ones, and it looks like there is a variable beyond bootarg.init.flash_optimized that needs to be set which is locked out of the public builds of ONTAP.


I suggest providing feedback through the NetApp learning center that an AFF simulator may be useful, and they may be able to get it made available in a future release
