Trying to Simulate Cluster Mode


Hi All, 


I am trying to simulate Netapp Cluster 8.3 , I have download the simulatior and i have configured one now i want to join another node in to it , How it can be done. 


Do i need to copy simulator or rename it ???? and create another machine ????


Please help me with exact steps.






The steps are provided in the simulator user guide which you can also download. The link should be provided near the download of the simulator software. You use the same simulator download, but you have to change the serial number on the boot up.


I have configured one node now i want to join another node to it to make it two node cluster so for this i need to SIMULATE another Node seperately and then  change the serial number of it ? and then configure doing so i am getting error not able to proceed 😞
