Unable to get Simulator 7.3.6 to work correctly


I have installed the 7.3.6 simulator onto a Linux host running RedHat that sits on top of Hyper-V.


The Linux host  has 2 interfaces.

1 I have put downm and is in promiscuous mode.


I have setup the simulator fine, but cannot get any network connectivity.

Does anyone have any ideas regarding subnets, netmasks etc .... 

I originally created dns entries for 2 new entries for ns0 and ns1 on the simulator, and selected the down interface on the underlying Linux host during the setup.

That did not work.

So, I tried using the same I.P address on ns0 as the down interface on the lInix host.

Still doesn't work.


Is there something that needs to be set on Hyper-V I have missed, or on the Linux host ?.





Hi there!


The 7.3 simulation environment is no longer anywhere near current. For 7-mode simulation, we have 8.2 simulators available.


However, I would strongly suggest you do any learning on our newer ONTAP 9 environment simulators.


Hope this helps!
