Has anyone been able to upgrade the simulator from 9.7 to 9.8? Any tips or tricks to try?  When I try to upgrade, my system hangs after reboot at...

I tried using the 9.8 simulator install but it is very unstable and crashes randomly.  I also cannot get it to reboot reliably.   And yes, I have plenty of space in vol0.

Expand the RAM of the SIM to 8GB and than try it again..

what is the proper number for that?  The current 5GB doesn't work out multiplying by 1024.

So changing the memory to 8gb has fixed this issue.  Because it wasn't done before the first power on, I needed to change it in VMware and set the variable for the memory at the LOADER prompt.

 

Side note, what caused the SIM to become unstable and crash was having the firewall turned on at the domain controller.  Found this little nugget in this blog... NetApp simulator 9.6 - Installation and Configuration (nazaudy.com)
