Easy way to put Vmware ESXi host into maintenance mode.
I know there’s another topic like this but, it is 3 years old. Is there an easy way to put a single ESX host into maintenance mode?Not to compare products but with Cisco Hyperflex, you right-click on the host and there’s a “Hyperflex maintenance mode” option. This does what needs to be done to the CV without having to SSH into anything.I was just wondering if the process has improved in 3 years.

2012 VMs intermittently locking up resolved
I've had an intermittant problem with some 2012 VMs I had migrated that have been locking up after a random time, usually going to 100% CPU and all IO stops. VM Console is unresponsive and network not reachable, reset is only solution to bring back online. It would then run again for a number of minutes, hours, even a day or more only to do same thing again at a random time through day or night, so was no logical patten to it. I endup tracking it down to a timezone config issue, when rebooting the VMs in question the timezone would set their clock to the hypervisior host time, which was in a different timezone (default TZ nodes were shipped with) to the the host VM TZ. I had a similar problem in the past, although not with the host lockups, where a number of hosts would lose time sync and be out by the TZ difference between host and VM on our Citrix XenServer Cluster hypervisor host. Because our VM are on an AD domain they will be out of NTP adjustment range becasue time differen
Nested Shares on AFS
Hi, we have the need for nested shares on our fileserver. While this was easy on NetApp Filer it seems impossible with Nutanix AFS, or I am missing something. We are currently on latest GA release AFS 2.0.2. with AOS 5.0.2 on ESXi 6.0U2. Is this on the roadmap or even possible with AFS 2.1? Replacing Fileservers (Windows or NetApp, doesnt matter) could only be done with full feature set. best regards Steffen
Nested HyperV on AHV
Has anyone successfully been able to get HyperV(or ESXi) nested under AHV? I do see nested [b]KVM[/b] VM's are supported but no mention of anything else. Only reason for exploring this is to get Cisco Umbrella VA's working under AHV so i don't have to re-purpose an old server to run HyperV/ESXi.
ESXi 6.0 Upgrade to 6.7U2
I'm trying to upgrade ESXi 6.0 to 6.7U2 but when try to do it from Prism im getting errors on DRS not enabled. Now we don't have DRS license, our cluster is ESXi 6.0 Standard License, is there any way to do the upgrade without the needs of DRS ?I read few documents that even if i try to use vCenter Update manager update will fail becasue DRS is not enabled. Any workaround solution ?
VM network Troubleshooting
Hello, If you use balance-slb, how does one figure out which physical is being used by one VM ? For instance, with ESXi I’d run esxtop, and I can see which physical nic is being “mapped” to my virtual nic. Is it possible with AHV? If yes how ? I think it is important when you troubleshoot.
Feature Copy/paste from client into a AHV Console VM
Any update on using copy/paste from our workstation/laptop into a VM Console of windows VM hoted on AHV cluster? How Do I Enable Copy and Paste in AHV? | Nutanix Community this would be a great feature to implement but it does not seem to be any information as to when this would be available and we would be deploying 3 new AHV Clusters so not sure if this is on the pipeline. thank you
Network connectivity issues in a Cluster
The setup is a cluster with 3 hosts. The cluster is up and running.However, the VMs connected to one of the hosts are not able to access the internet or other VMs on the network.If any of the affected VM is migrated to another host in the cluster, then it will be able to access the internet or other VMs on the network.Once it is returned to the faulty host, the connectivity problem will persist again.
Hyper-V - Persistent Reservations & Corrupt VHDs
[b]How do Persistent Reservations work with Hyper-V on Nutanix?[/b] [list] [*]I'm asking because with our other "Hyper-V with SMB Storage" clusters, you are not able to use Hyper-V manager on [b]HOST1[/b] to modify VHDs that belong to a VM running on [b]HOST2[/b], as you would expect - Error reads: "Access Denied". However, with Nutanix, we are able to do this and it leads to VHD corrouption upon next reboot of the VM [*]Here is the scenario:[list] [*]Hosts: 5 node Nutanix cluster with Hyper-V (Dell XC hardware) [*]VM1 is running on HOST1 [*]Using HOST2, launch Hyper-V manager ([i]not Failover Cluster Manager). [/i][b]Edit Disk[/b] to resize a VHD of VM1. Resize successful (This fails in our non-Nutanix clusters) [*]Using HOST2, check the properties of VM1’s VHD and you will notice that the file size has changed [*]Using HOST1 (where the VM is running), check the properties of the VHD and you will notice that the file size [b]HAS NOT[/b] changed [*]Reboot VM1, server will not boot –
ESXi5.5 Upgrade and patch installation - Supported-QA vertified
Hi all, We have a 3x node Dell XC630-10 Cluster running on AOS18.104.22.168 - Starter License. These nodes are running a Dell Customised 5.5U2 VMware image. I want to upgrade these nodes to a Dell 5.5U3-A04 image build 3248547. This will have to be done manually as we do not have DRS running (Standard VMware license). On top of the image I want to patch them to "Patch 8" level - release date - 04/AUG/2016 (Patch 9 available now). However reading the [url=http://www.nutanix.com/support/support-faqs/#hypervisor-support]Hypervisor FAQ[/url] it seems that major/minor vSphere releases are supported and QA certified within 90 days of GA. Therefore my question is: After applying the Dell 5.5U3 Custom image then, in theory, I can only apply Express Patch 10 build 3568722- 22/Feb/2016? Comments are much appreciated.
Nutanix Data Center - Riverbed SteelFusion (Regional Offices)
I am considering deploying a hub-spoke architecture with Nutanix Clusters at 1-2 Data Centers with Riverbed SteelFusion Hyper-Converged Appliances at the Regional Offices (To Reduce Server Footprint and Optimize WAN connectivity). Has anyone on the board deployed this solution? If so, please elaborate on your experiences... Appreciatively, Dholling "MacMan"
Can not type a full stop symbol
I found a problem that can not type a full stop symbol into User VMs under acropolis hypervisor but if I uesd a remote desktop connect to those User VMs It's available a full stop symbol I want to know that in this case it is a problem with IE or AHV.
