Using Vagrant to provision the Clustered Data ONTAP vSim

This post was previously hosted on a different site and then migrated here.

Vagrant Logo This post initially started out as a guide to deploying and setting up the cDOT simulator, but over the weekend I stumbled across a collection of scripts on GitHub that allowed you to use Vagrant to provision and configure the simulator.

For those that don’t know what Vagrant is - you’re missing out. If you’re like me and you like to play with new technologies, Vagrant allows for easy creation, configuration, and destruction of test boxes and environments.


Eric Wright has done a good series on getting started with Vagrant, so if you’re interested in taking a look at it I recommend starting there, and with the official documentation.

A few things you need to get started:

Installation is pretty straight forwards:

Clone the repo

Edit the licenses

Vagrant Up!


Vagrant destroy

I’ve forked the original repo and shall be updating it soon to support the latest version of the simulator and try and keep it in-line with releases, but props go to the chap that pulled this together originally. Nice work.
