Hi @moelharrak !

Simware is great for Comware simulation, however you may be interested in testing ArubaOS-CX virtual machine that simulates ArubaOS-CX device - https://asp.arubanetworks.com/downloads/software/RmlsZToyZjg3MTRkNC0wODAyLTExZWItOGM0OC04YmEzYTRmN2MzNzk%3D BTW, it can be integrated to GNS3 - https://gns3.com/initiatives/arubaos-cx-simulation-software

Hope this helps!

P.S. Another way to play with Comware device in a virtualized environment is using VSR1000 virtual router that also can be intergrated to GNS3, but it lacks many switching features.
