Cómo instalar el simulador de NetApp Data ONTAP

Hoy vamos a crear un entorno de pruebas para cabinas de almacenamiento Netapp. Se trata de un simulador de Data ONTAP (Sistema operativo de Netapp) con el cual podremos disponer de una cabina 100% funcional sobre la que hacer pruebas y modificaciones sin necesidad de utilizar las cabinas de producción.

El simulador se puede descargar desde el sitio web oficial (con registro). Esta es la dirección.

Vamos a proceder a la instalación, es realmente sencilla. Descomprimimos el fichero descargado y ejecutamos el setup (como root) del simulador:

# gunzip 7.3.4-tarfile-v22.tgz
# tar -xvf 7.3.4-tarfile-v22.tar
# sudo ./setup.sh

La salida de la instalación es similar a lo siguiente, veréis que os hace una serie de preguntas. Tenemos la posibilidad de añadir los discos que estimemos necesarios, crear un cluster, etc.

Procedemos a arrancar el simulador:

sudo /sim/runsim.sh

En el primer arranque, se ejecutará el asistente al igual que en una cabina real, donde configuraremos la red, hostname y demás configuraciones iniciales:

Tras la configuración, accederemos directamente al login de la cabina y podremos comenzar a trabajar con el simulador:

En futuros artículos comenzaremos a modificar configuraciones en el simulador para ver todas sus posibilidades.

  1. Muy buen artículo. Enhorabuena!

    Un par de cuestiones:

    – ¿Es posible gestionar este simulador mediante un System Manager?

    – ¿Es posible simular un metrocluster con este simulador?

    Gracias.

    • Hola Javier,
      si que se puede utilizar system manager pero no puedes configurarlo como metrocluster.

      Por cierto algún alma caritativa que me enseñe un link donde pueda descargarlo? y que no sea del now que ya no tengo cuenta.

      Muchas gracias.
