I see a simulator for HCS in hds portal, does it include HDvM, HTSM & HRpM as well??
Anybody tried those simulators?? Is there any documentation to install HCS simulator
Dang Luong - Can you please throw some light on this point
Do this from the HDS Portal home page: Tools and Support > Technical Resources > Product & Software Simulators.
Currently, there are 4 simulators:
The latest version, 7.4.1, of the HDS Laptop Simulation tool includes Device Manager, Tuning Manager, and Replication Manager. However, the last two offer only limited capabilities.
I found this note regarding the installation:
"We are now using Virtual Box instead of Virtual PC to wrap the HDS product. If you have an old laptop simulator install on your laptop, you will have to remove it and in particular you will have to remove Microsoft's loopback adapter. It is easy to do. Just go to the Control Panel->Hardware & Sound->Device Manager->Network Adapters. Right click Microsoft's Loopback Adapter and select uninstall. The current HCS simulator is compatible with Windows 7 only, XP is not supported. For further installation instructions, read the readme.txt file in the main simulator program folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Hitachi Data Systems\HCS 7.4.1 Laptop Simulation\Documentation."
Dang Luong Thanks a lot Dang.
In the latest version, Do we have the functionality of Hitachi Tiered Storage Manager????
I don't believe there is.
Ohh Ok. But normally command suite comes with a package containing Tiered Storage Manager also right??
Yes, Tiered Storage Manager is part of Hitachi Command Suite.

Could you provide a link for the "simulator" .
I could not find it on "portal.hds.com" site.
Roger DEFREITAS, You have to be a partner for downloading the same, else you need to get in touch with your HDS A/C manager.
I am a partner....
I see there's a version for HCS 7.4, is there any work in progress for something more recent? I know HCS 8.0 is coming out so wondering if that'll be updated for the simulator.
I'm not sure... only know what is currently available just like you.
