When I try to download the simulator from http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/simulator I get the following message:
You have come to a page or module to which you do not have permission.
If you believe you have proper permissions and have reached this notification in error, please submit Feedback.
If you have an urgent technical issue related to a NetApp product, please contact NetApp's Global Support Center
The Feedback link also gives me the same error.
Is there any known problem with downloading the Simulator?
I'm connected to the site with my registered user. I'm not a paying customer (yet) but I understand that I should be able to download it for free, right?
It's a free download for registered users with paid support.
Guest level access on the support site is very limited.

Yes, it was useful.
Is there any way to evaluate it before becoming a paying customer?
You're very welcome.
Yes you can get an eval before you buy - by contacting NetApp sales.
