I have configured clustered ONTAP simulator after opening virtual machine (downloaded from NetApp site) in VMware workstation - configured Network Adapter to use NAT, created cluster and assigned 192.168.40.1 IP Address to it, created aggregate, lif and volumes.
I am trying to add host from DFM server installed on another machine using the host IP where I have the virtual machine with clustered ONTAP, but it can't recognize the IP and gives error with timeout.
Can you give me a hint what I might done wrong or incomplete?
I have a clustered Ontap simulator running on VMware Workstation. I've always used bridged network adapter instead of NAT, though and I've never had any problems accessing them from System Manager or DFM. Maybe you could try that?
The installation guide states that in c-mode (and bridged), static IP has to be used...
- Bridged and Custom: Virtual network interface vmnet0 is set to bridged and all other interfaces used by Simulate ONTAP are set to either host-only or custom.
If the virtual network interface vmnet0 is set as bridged, then you can use the physical Ethernet port of your laptop to access all volumes created and mounted by using Data ONTAP. This works only if the IP addresses and subnet are static in clustered Data ONTAP, or if 7-Mode operations support DHCP.
Make sure you assign valid IP addresses to each node and to the cluster ip address. Here are examples from two simulated nodes:
From simulated node 1:
san-4netappsim12-clu::> network interface show
Logical Status Network Current Current Is
Vserver Interface Admin/Oper Address/Mask Node Port Home
I really had something mixed with IP addresses. Now it's resolved, thanks a lot.
But I still cannot add cluster in DFM server.
I am able to add cluster in the OnCommand System manager which is installed on my local machine where I have cluster node VMs, but I fail to add it on DFM server running in another machine. Here is the error log:
where 10.26.128.251 is my cluster's IP address
I guess still I have something incomplete in my setup.
I would be very grateful if you could assist here.
On the simulated node(s) you have to set up an snmp community. From your previous dfm screenshot it looks like you have a "public" community. You can try that. Do the following command on simulated node(s) CLI:
The snmp on the simulated node is working now. If you notice, your latest screenshot shows SNMPv1 Passed, whereas it was failing (failed: timeout) in the original screenshot. I'm not sure what the problem is now. Maybe the network settings are still incorrect? I hate to keep asking you to post screenshots, but can you please post your Virtual Machine Settings (I'm interested in the network adapters) and also a screenshot of the CLI command "network interface show"? I am leaving work for the day so I won't be able to respond until tomorrow.
