Simulator Update

I managed to get a copy of the Celerra Simulator last week and I've just managed to get it installed. Although it is simple, it is quite specific on requirements - it runs under VMware ACE as a Linux program. It needs an Intel processor and can't run on a machine with VMware already installed. Fortunately my test server fits the bill (once I uninstalled VMware Server). Once up, you administer through a browser.

At this stage that's as far as I've got - however it looks good. More soon.

I've been searching hi and low for the SIM software - could you post info on how to obtain? is it DL'able?

I suggest you talk to your local EMC representative. The software isn't downloadable and isn't available to normal customer accounts on Powerlink. You need to get an EMC employee to do it for you.

If you are an EMC customer you can download the latest Celerra Simulator version from the EMC Powerlink website. This version runs on VM workstation or VM player. The link is included below.

The new 5.5.29 version of the EMC Celerra Simulator is now downloadable to registered EMC Powerlink users.

There are several significant changes in this release.

* This version runs under the VMware Player or Workstation as a VMware image and does not utilize the VMware ACE package.

* There are 2 versions, for 1 and 2 Datamovers. The 1 Datamover version requires less client memory.

* There is no licence key required and there is no expiration.

* It is available to any Powerlink Registered User, employee, partner, and customers.
