Data ONTAP 8.0.1 Simulator available for download from NOW

Hi folks,


I'm happy to announce that we have posted the simulator for Data ONTAP 8.0.1:




There  are two zip files (one for 7-Mode and another for Cluster-Mode). We've  also updated the licenses file to include licenses for deduplication and  compression.


Couple of things to note:


  1. the  Data ONTAP version string inside the simulators says "Data ONTAP  8.0.1RC3X16" instead of just "Data ONTAP 8.0.1". The code is identical  to the generally available release of Data ONTAP; the RC3X16 build is  the build that GA is based on.
  2. In order to create a  Cluster-Mode cluster, you'll need to extract the contents of the zip  file twice. Rename the first one something like "DOT801-Cm1", and the  extract it again and rename it "DOT801-Cm2". Then run setup and init  within each node, run cluster create in Cm1, and run cluster join in  Cm2. For more information, please see the Cluster-Mode documentation available on the NOW site.


As  always, this Community is the best place for questions and discussions  related to the simulator. For more general questions about how to manage  Data ONTAP appliances, there may be other forums which are more  appropriate.


Thanks and take care,
