Latest NetApp simulator v.8.0  is available here.

http://now.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/simulator/ontap/8.0

Download this and you can save it in your machine. Next question how we will install this in windows macine?

Download Vmware product ( Workstation or server ) and install it in windows . Then file –> Open–> Show the extracted Sim.

Power on the Sim through vmware .

But you can see that it is continuosly rebooting the filer. To avoid this press Ctrl +C while booting the filer and select option 4. ( This will zero the disk)

Now you will get tht setup prompt after reboot the filer. Now we need to assign the disk manually to Aggr.

Note : Vmware is the license product and you need to get the license ( 1 month evaluation version is availabe in Vmware website. To get this you need to register in Vmware websites)

Start your hands on in NetApp. Enjoy

Regards

Akther
