VSIM for ONTAP 8.2.4 P6 and ONTAP 8.2.5 P1


Wondering if anyone might be able to point me in the right direction for downloading VSIM for ONTAP of ONTAP 8.2.4 P6 and ONTAP 8.2.5 P1 .  We support those in our environment and wanted to do some testing in a staged environment to see if we could simulate some fixes before we deploy them to the field. 


Thanks in advanced.




On the Simulator download page, there is only 8.2.3 & 8.3 image available.

Please have a look at this thread, it has a similar query and a useful response/workaround:




Thank you!


Just FYI:

I upgraded by Ontap 9.6 SIMULATOR from 9.6 to 9.6P4 using standard Prod ONTAP Image and it worked. Thanks to Alex in the thread I mentioned. I have been using simulators for sometime now, but had never upgraded the SIMULATOR, infact I wasn't aware if it is possible. It does work.  You should be alright, good luck!


Upgraded my SImulator From 9.6 to 9.6 P4:
