Nimble Virtual Array

Just a heads up, if your a Nimble partner, then the Nimble Virtual Array is available, reach out to your SE for more details, but it can be downloaded from the InfoSight downloads page.

I'll hopefully have a blog post soon on setting it up.

Yes, and don't forget, you will need to generate a license key, which is good for 90 days. You will not be able to use the VM without it.

+1 for this! Thanks to the SEs at Nimble who kept bugging corporate to make this possible! I'm in post-sales for a new Nimble partner and this has been extremely useful to me for getting up to speed quickly before my first install.  I've taken the Install and Administer class and the online training, but you can't replace the experience of getting your hands on the tech.

Just getting it downloaded myself - I'll have something to tinker with now!  Long time to download, so gonna sleep on this for now...

Is there a reason why this is Partner access only? This would be very helpful to us customers as well.

Currently it's only a demo device for partners to help with learning, demo, script testing, and such. can't say anything about the future.

Great news, waited soooo long for that to happen. Thanks to all involved.

Unfortunately activating doesn't seem to work.

The site the VA tries to contact returns this: {"message":"HTTP 404 Not Found"}

Re: Nimble Virtual Array

the server your installing it on MUST have internet access to NImble on initial boot. we then ask for you activation code. if the server doesn't have internet access, please call support and then might have a work around.

Re: Nimble Virtual Array

The interfaces of the Nimble VM are in a network that has full internet access and gets a dhcp address for each interface it tries but can't reach infosight:

Not sure if that is normal, but it can't be pinged on the IPs it receives.

Re: Nimble Virtual Array

Thanks Dean,

Could this be the forerunner to Nimble launching an SDS solution?

Cheers,

Les.
