Simulator Discussions

second Simulate ONTAP 9.3 failed to boot

miller

hello,

 

i'm trying to configure simulator 9.3 on vmware esx.

i have managed to install the first node succesfully and its up and running.

when trying to install the second I've encountered an issue.

i followed the insructions of the installaion guide:

 

"Change the Serial Number and System ID for this node:
VLOADER> setenv SYS_SERIAL_NUM 4034389-06-2 VLOADER> setenv bootarg.nvram.sysid 4034389062
Verify that the information was saved correctly:
VLOADER> printenv SYS_SERIAL_NUM VLOADER> printenv bootarg.nvram.sysid"

 

and after doing so i booted the node and got a lot of error messages1.png2.png3.png

 

dont know what to do in this case,please advise.

thank you very much.

It looks like it had boot looped before you changed the loader settings.

 

The simplest fix is to deploy a fresh copy from the ova.
