I'm the only one with this issue? After upgrade of my ESXi host to 5.1 the OnTap Simulator 8.1.1 no longer work. I only get the follwoing error:


Cannot open the disk '/vmfs/volumes/<id>/vsim-DOT811-7m/DataONTAP-sim.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

The system cannot find the file specified

VMware ESX cannot find the virtual disk "/vmfs/volumes/<id>/vsim-DOT811-7m/DataONTAP-sim.vmdk". Verify the path is valid and try again.


Before the Update everything worked without any issue. The vmdk Files are there, it also not works if i manually assign those disk files. I have also never made any snapshots, this cannot be the problem.

A re-download of the Simulator files and add to the Host, get the same issue.
