Hi - I’m having an issue with a new installation of Nutanix on AHV (single node cluster) that I’m hoping someone hear can help with.Basically, using Prism, when I attempt to create a new VM the process fails with the error “VM with ID ‘*********’ was not found”. However, if I attempt to add a VM without a new disk, it successfully creates the VM but I can’t add a disk to it, error “Operation Failed: InternalException”.I’ve been able to upload my ISOs for installation etc. and of course the CVM is seemingly working fine. Any ideas what could be wrong? Many thanks.
Environment: Windows Server 2019 version 1809 (core and with graphical user interface). At the moment I am working for a customer to do migrations to Windows Server 2019. Since the migration of the virtual environment by the customer from VMWare VSphere 6.xxx to Nutanix AHV, version 20170830.412 I have the following problem. Before the installation I could work with the Window Admin Center on a Windows Server 2019 without any restrictions. After the installation the Windows Admin Center can be opened, but several error messages appear: Error messagesPerformance class not found:CPU performance class not found on this computer.Remote Exception: The property 'Product' cannot be found on this object. Verify that the property exists. Type: ErrorRetrieve user settings and extensions: RemoteException: The property 'Product' cannot be found on this object. Verify that the property exists. This means that no more data is displayed in the overview and the Tools bar of the Admin Center is on

Wanted ask the community for some feedback on the topic of SQL Server 2008/R2 End of Support. My fellow Nutanix Solutions team members [user=48543]gregwhite[/user] [user=74942]Chris Paap[/user], myself and others were discussing about SQL Server 2008/R2 End of Support and how that would impact IT? Can you help us by sharing your thoughts, actions, tools around DB/app upgrades, migration etc related to SQL Server 2008/R2? You can take the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VJ2NWXS
I downloaded symantec messaging gateway (brightmail) ova file. I uploaded the vmdk file as an image on my prism. I created a virtual machine and attached the disk. but it is not booting. virtio diriver is not installed., i tried to install it and it is not installed. because brightmail root access is restricted. I never found a way to install it. I talked to symantech support, the result; they said only vmware, hyperv support. I tried many ways; ova, backup/restore.. but without success. I can't run brightmail on ahv. it doesn't boot. I seek help from those who have succeeded in this matter. thank you.
Customer is currently running OVM on Sparc hardware. Guest OS on OVM is Solaris and Oracle Database runs on Solaris.Nuatnix AHV will support Solaris?there is a way to move to Nutanix AHV and what could be the best guest OS suitable – Oracle Linux or one of the other Oracle certified guest OS’s .
Hi, I have a customer who is having a cluster of 11 Hyper-V 2016 compute nodes and 2 AHV storage nodes. During a NCC health check, there is an error mentioning that the 2 AHV nodes are not syncing with any NTP server. The current NTP time sync setup is something like this. Nutanix cluster (Hyper-V and AHV) → DC → NTP source First question, how should we begin troubleshooting the issue? There is no remote access for our support to perform a webex session troubleshooting due to security. Second question, customer is changing the NTP source. This new NTP source is 1-2 mins behind. Any impact if customer proceeds to update on the DC? Does the cluster auto sync up Third question, at what time intervals does the nutanix cluster probe or sync up with NTP time? Regards, Leonard Thng
Hi, I'm a little bit new a Nutanix, however since last summer I can handle it very well Now I got a question wich I want to share here. I have to prepare a windows server. The requirments of the software wich will be hosted on this server preverene dedicated CPU and memory. So is this in the nutanix (AHV) installation posible to create a VM with his own dedicated CPU's (6cores) and memory? Regards Peter
Hi, my name is Rossana, I am new to the community and I have a question, I would like to know if someone can help me to know what kind of requirements NUTANIX must have to install SAP Business One, with 25 users and a HANA Database engine of 64GB with an average of 20,000 monthly transactions. Thank you very much
What is the status of Credential Guard on Nutanix VMs? We are running AOA 5.20.I have created a new VM with UEFI, Secure boot and Credential Guard enabled, but I can’t get it to work. Credential Guard is enabled with GPO, but still will not run. When I look at device security, it says “Standard hardware security not supported” and there is no compatible TPM shown in tpm.msc.The OS I’m testing it on is Microsoft Server 2019.
Hi all, I´m attempting to download one image from a cluster on port 2222 as described on many documents (i.e. AHV | How to access VM disk files on Nutanix container or Copy files to/from a containter ) and I have a strange issue: using Filezilla or Winscp it works fine, using Centos 7.7 Linux scp doesn´t work. A syntax as “scp -P 2222 admin@VCM-IP:/default-container-171248/.acropolis/vmdisk/image-or-disk-uuid” accept the password and then terminate with error “exec request failed on channel 0” On the linux side firewall & selinux have been disabled a scp to other systems works fine. Any suggestion?
We automate the creation of new VMs in our AHV cluster using RestAPI calls and JSON provided VM specification (generated by script etc). Nowhere in our provided JSON do we specify the storage container that vdisks should be created in, but all new VMs have their storage allocated inside ‘SelfServiceContainer’. Wondering if SelfServiceContainer is somehow configured as a default inside AOS - as I would like to change this to a different container if such a config exists? Now I know that I can specify the storage container inside the JSON I provide for each VM creation (and this might be the only way I achieve this), but I am trying to understand if there is someway of configuring a default storage container inside AOS?Thanks in advance, Paul
Hi there community, I’m hoping that someone can give me some guidance. We recently acquired a facility with some Nutanix clusters deployed, and this is my first time working with Nutanix. I have access to the vSphere hosts but no idea on the Nutanix side of things. Trying to activate the support portal with any and all serial numbers I can find just gives me an invalid serial number message….which means I can’t open a support ticket to ask about the serial numbers. I see each of the host machines running a Nutanix Controller VM, but I’m guessing there is a central management console tied to the hardware (NX?), and a spreadsheet from the seller lists some hardware/enclosure serial numbers, but under serial number just mentions refer to PRISM. I’m trying to hunt down someone at the seller to provide more details and make sure things get transferred, but is there anything I can do or look at in the meantime to figure this thing out?
I am trying to install the Nutanix virt-who v1.1 rpm on RHEL 6.10 to talk to Red Hat Satellite v6.3. I have installed the virt-who rpm with its dependencies except for systemd (which does not exist for RHEL v6), installed Python 2.7 from the Software collections rpm, set the “scl enable python27 bash” in /etc/rc.d/rc.local, changed the virt-who script to point to that instead of /usr/bin/python, but it fails to run. I have determined that the failure is do the the ‘require’ in the python script not finding the virt-who libraries. To replicate that, I can run “pip -v list” and see that virt-who is not listed.Has anyone gotten past this? Thanks,mark
Hi all I´m attempting to create one disk image from http server (I know that NFS is preferred) but i got errors from PE, acli and REST API. AHV, CVM, PE, PC and the web server are one the same network (then I can exclude routing issues) and on the web server (Centos 7.7, apache httpd-2.4.6-90) firewall and selinux are disabled and the url is called using IP to avoid dns issues. The content is available via wget but the image creation command ends with error 503 (Service Unavailable) while on the web server with log at debug level nothing is written on error and access log. I have tested also to stop httpd and use python -m SimpleHTTPServer 80 but doesn´t work (I got one excepction that I cannot fully read and I don´t know where is logged) What´s wrong? I´m missing something? Someone have a suggestion? Here some operation samples: Download test using wget to check http service ~~~ nutanix@cmv:~/tmp$ wget http://192.168.158.40/images/gm-back-test-001-scsi1.qcow2 --2020-03-17 16:
There was a thread back in 2016 regarding getting VM activity events logged in Prism (PE or PC). Events such as powering on and off a VM should be displayed in PE or PC so we can try to track down when a reboot may have occurred easily. This has been a core VMware vCenter function for ages, but is glaringly absent in Prism for AHV. My company is in the middle of the AHV conversion right now, and my teammates are asking me how to find out about these events. I don’t really like the idea of giving untrained folks access to the “nutanix” account on the CVM to look at acropolis.log. In the 2016 thread, someone said enhancements are coming to Prism. Are they still coming?
Hi everybody we are just in the beginning of the process of migrating our environment from VMWare to AHV. One of the scenarios that we need to consider for one of our application sets involves cloning an entire drive from a build server to a reporting server. Essentially right now I have a server that takes data and compiles it into a finished product on an intermittent basis. When the server completes it’s build it calls another script that clones the drive to a reporting server. Our reporting server has duplicate drives 1 online and 1 offline, the script overwrites the offline drive, then gets the drives to swap online state so that our clients are now reporting on the newly refreshed data. I am looking to replicate this concept and am hoping for a few pointers. In our existing environment I am making use of some of the storage commands for the disk clone. I am hoping to understand how to replicate the disk clone from an AHV hosted Windows server. Would anybody have any sugge
Hi All, One of my customer doing POC Nutanix right now. They create VM with application that use for Exam Online. So they set Public IP on that VM where their student can access for Exam from outside. Suddenly for 2 days the VM active, they found on their router that VM consume almost 500 Mbps internet bandwith usage. They already have that application on non-Nutanix server and not find any issue related. Is there any application or service or something on Nutanix platform consume internet bandwith that we don’t know?
