I am following the guide provided at the link below,
and as a first step, before you begin, it says
Install a hypervisor on the node and attach the Controller VM ISO to the system.
Where can I get the Controller VM ISO from please?
I went to the Downloads section of the portal (https://portal.nutanix.com) but couldn't find anything relevant.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Control VM ISO is also called Phoenix, that is only needed in case you are doing a bare metal installation when the nodes have nothing installed.
A fresh Nuatnix box will always arrive with AHV and CVM already setup, so you need to used foundation applet to configure the cluster or re-image to the hypervisor of your choice.
Go through the field guide 3.7 available on the portal.
Thank you for your reply.
I went to the link provided below which provides information in regards to the Phoenix installation procedure as well as required files,
This is very straight forward so far, so I went to the Downloads section to download Phoenix and there is no such option. In addition to bezeddin's comment below, I went to the link he provided,
only to notice that the list is empty; refer to the screenshot provided below.
I really hope I am not offending anyone from the people out there trying to help (your assistance is greatly appreciated, honestly), but this is by far the worst company technical documentation I have ever encountered.
Can you share some information, are these new blocks, what hypervisor r u planning to install and what action had been taken so far.. based on that i can help you with exact procedure..
Thanks for your reply, please find below all the details.
Model: Nutanix NX-1065-G5 (3 nodes)
Hypervisor: ESXi 6 build 4600944
What I would like to do is decommission the entire cluster and rebuild everything from scratch (same as having a baremetal server shipped from Dell or HP without any kind of software installed), by deploying all prerequisite software individually so that I can understand how this environment works. Having said that, I would greatly appreciate it if you could briefly explain how these components work together, for example, what is Foundation, what is Acropolis (is it the Nutanix platform providing these virtualized services) and what is Phoenix; as I understand AHV is the actual proprietary hypervisor provided from Nutanix and NCC is a just health check plugin provided through Prism where Prism is a service provided through the CVM.
