Question about Netapp Simulator 8.1 C-Mode

Currently Being Moderated

Hello Community,


first of all I am new to NetApp.

I try to set up a pNFS environment. Therefore i installed Netapp Simlator 8.1 C-Mode and used the Document "Parallel Network File System Configuration and Best Practices for Data ONTAP 8.1 Cluster-Mode (TR-4063) https://communities.netapp.com/docs/DOC-16613 .

Everything works fine till i try to verify my setup (7.1 Enable pNFS on Vserver)



simcluster::*> nfs show -vserver nfsvsrv1

                                          Vserver: nfsvsrv1

On 7.3 "Check the Status of pNFS on Cluster-Mode" i try to enter the following command: "statistics show -object nfsv4_1 -instance nfsvsrv1 -counter *_total.

But here begins my problem. I have no Option nfsv4_1 only nfs4 is available. Is this a limitation of the simulator?  The same happens to the option -counter. There is no such option on my simulator...


Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks  in advance


Best Regards
