Get started with the MIMIC WEB Simulator

MIMIC WEB Simulator is an optional MIMIC protocol module to simulate WEB Services. This page helps you to get started with a basic WEB simulation. To get started with Redfish simulation see this other page.

It can be enabled after the base MIMIC installation as below.

    Enable WEB Services in MIMIC

  1. At this point you should have MIMIC installed, and the MIMICview GUI running (see details) . If you don't have MIMICview running, please consult your license e-mail to get it installed and running.

  2. Check whether you already have WEB enabled in MIMIC as shown in the Help -> About Mimic... dialog in MIMICview. It should be listed under Loaded protocols. If already there, then skip to step 7.

  3. Run Protocol Wizard using the Wizards -> Protocol Wizard menu in MIMICView (see details)

  4. Select WEB Services in Select Protocols dialog if not already selected. Press Next.

  5. Supply corresponding license keys from the license email in the Supply License Keys dialog. Then press Next.

  6. The Result Installing/Uninstalling Protocols dialog shows what got done. Press Finish to proceed. When the simulator restarts, you should have Redfish enabled.

    Download optional sample WEB packages

  7. At this point, you should have WEB Services enabled in MIMIC as shown in the Help -> About Mimic... dialog in MIMICview. WEB should be listed under Loaded protocols. If not, send us the MIMIC log. (see details)

  8. Invoke the MIMICview Wizard -> Update menu to download and install WEB packages (see details)
