I have installed ontap 8.1.2 simulator using VM Workstation 9 on WinServer 2008 R2. I was
2.pdf. Everything went fine until I powered on the simulator's VM.
After that it keeps rebooting with a critical message that 32MB is used for NVRAM.
Switching from normal to maintenance boot worked, and I was able to use ONTAP API. Yet when I
do any "aggr" or "vol" commands, it reports that there are no disks attached.
The VM Workstation reports that there are 4 hard disks installed as shown in the picture below.
I noticed that several older simulator installation instructions
installation-simple-steps-and-frequently-asked-questions, for example) are mentioning an
additinal step of adding DataONTAP-cf.vmdk virtual disk. I don't see this file in my download
of 8.1.2 simulator.
I will appreciate any ideas for moving forward.
