ONTAP simulator 8.1.2 on VirtualBox

Following the excellent instructions provided for the 8.1.1 simulator (located at https://communities.netapp.com/thread/24964) I've tried to recreate with the 8.1.2 simulator.

 

The idea is the same, create a FreeBSD_64 vm, attach the disks in the same order as the vmx file from the virtualplayer image describes to the IDE bus, add serial ports with redirect, no audio device, 4 nics, etc.

 

The VM will boot up fine, but then it will error with "Cannot open env/env" and

 

*******************************************

Unable to read environment from CF card!

Please re-create your VM environment.

*******************************************

 

 

I've noticed that there is a cfcard directory provided in the download and it contains the env/env file that then has all the environment settings.

 

Any VMWare wizards in the house that can shed some light on how this file is being accessed from the vm?

 

Thanks
