Anyone know when 8.2.1RC1 VSIM posts?  Or if you see it posted please post back here in case I miss it when it is available.

    Have you tried an upgrade?   When 8.2 hit RC it took quite a while to get new VSIMS out so I just upgraded my 8.1.x instances with the RC bits.

      Upgrade tgz for vsim isn't available to resellers.

        The regular 821RC_q_image.tgz works in the sim.  It may fail due to timeout because the sim is rediculously slow, and it may fail if you don't have a large enough root volume (1gb is not enough).

      In this version, it fails to fdisk a blank ad3 (I usually replace mine and size it for my simdisk load).  Typically if the vmdk is blank ontap will partition it at boot before running makedisks. In this version fdisk fails, even interactively from the systemshell.  The fix seems to be to set kern.geom.debugflags=16, then fdisk by hand to prep ad3.
