Hi Guys,


I have downloaded zip file from NetApp Downloads page and uploaded to datastore and then registered VM. I have powered on the VM but it is continuosuly rebooting.


Please let me know if any one ran in to this situation or have any ideas how to resolve it. I am getting the error message as attached.


Error: Failed to setup fresh /var file system. Please contact technical support.
