I love really appreciate Zabbix. Since I am working with Zabbix for quite some time now, I’m eager to test new releases, which I do. The most simple way is to grab the appliance from the main repo and swing it into WMware workstation (or Virtualbox for that matter).

A year ago I posted a way to add more disks to the Netapp Simulator in 7-Mode (well, Peter did that in fact, just copied the post for my own reference). Soooo,.what I missed was to add additional disks to the other simulator, namely the C-mode.
Fire up your virt tool and do the following:

1.1: Download the CDOT 8.2 SIM from http://support.netapp.com > Downloads > Product Evaluations > Data ONTAP Simulator > Simulator 8.x > 8.2 Clustered-ONTAP for VMware Workstation
1.2: Unpack the downloaded vsim_netapp-cm.tgz
1.3: Open the DataONTAP.vmx file with VMware Workstation
