Joining Cisco ACI Simulator Split OVA Files in Microsoft Windows
The OVA file for the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) simulator comes split into multiple files. You must join the files together before you can install the Cisco ACI simulator software.
From Cisco.com, download all parts of the acisim-version.ova file to a folder on your Windows machine.
Each part is a multi-gigabyte file, so make sure that you have enough space on the machine where you will combine the files.
From a Windows Command Prompt (cmd.exe), navigate to the folder where you downloaded the simulator split files.
In the following example, the files are on the Z: drive in the acisim folder:
Use the copy /b command to join the split files.
The following example commands show joining 5 acisim-5.0-1k_*.ova files into in a single file named acisim.ova:
This process takes several minutes and will result in a new joined file being created with the name you that you specified. The command will not delete the original split files.
What to do next
Deploy this newly-combined OVA file.
