Howdy,I am trying to envision what this would look like in a Nutanix environment for planning purposes.Currently we have two datacenters. We have one large vcenter cluster (Cisco UCSs, Synchronous Nimbles, Nexus vpc pair, L2 stretch on our own dark fiber (multiple 10gb links)) stretched across both DCs. This allows us to vmotion all VMs from one side to another, take down half our hosts, or even a whole DC without any issues.Thinking what this would look like if we were full Nutanix and AHV I am pretty sure this would not work (1 large cluster as we couldnt take down 1 DC since that would take out half of the hosts\storage). Correct?If so, I am thinking this would require at least a cluster at each DC, and then you metro-availability to uses the real-time sync. Does that sound about right from a high level?Thanks
I have a 8 nodes nutanix with vSphere 7 deployed. I’ve created 2 new storage container with compression enabled and map to the nodes. I test to copy the file that i uploaded to the default container to the new storage container presented as NFS datastore...it was very slow. 5GB took 2hrs. Then i tried storage vmotion of a VM reside on the new datastore to another new datastore. A 10GB VM took 20 minutes. If storage vmotion from the default container to new datastore, it fails.
Long shot i know, but i’m wondering if anyone every solved the issue of VSS backups failing after June 2022 Update on Hyper-V 2012 R2 hosts. Veeam has this KB Article that references a workaround/fix: https://www.veeam.com/kb4333However, it’s not at all clear how i would make a domain account an administrator/backup operator on the File Server that hosts the SMB3.0 share (the cvm..)
Hey Guys,Can anyone give the EOL information for version 6.5?In Support portal the EOL information is mentioned as “End of Maintenance and End of Support Life dates for 6.5.Z are based on the Release Date of the next LTS Release that is an Upgrade; these dates will be published at that time.”Is it recommended to upgrade to this version since EOL information is not mentioned?
Try to apply an upgrade from a Windows server 2012 R2 to Windows 2019 using Microsoft ISO image, but always fails to show this message: Has anyone managed to upgrade from Windows server 2012 R2 to Windows server 2019?I would appreciate some help about the subject. Thanks in advance. Manuel.
New to AHV, just installed this week. I have using VMware since version 2.5. Trying to deploy AHV Windows VMs from template and from AHV VMs. On both methods I get guest customization options using sysprep. I have been choosing “Guided Script” and filling out the fields for User Name, Password, Local, and Host Name. I leave the license key blank becasue we have enterpise licesing which is assigned when teh VM is joined to the domain. So far, evertime I have tried the host name does not get updated to match the Host Name I entered for the guided script. Also, in VMware guest customization you put what you want the password to be after sysprep. Fr this one is it asking for the current Administrator User/Password, or one to be updated or created by sysprep?
Our PC (we only have the one pc.2022.6) is currently hosted on an ESXi cluster, we also have 2 Nutanix clusters running ESXi as the hypervisor. I’m looking at moving PC to one of the 2 Nutanix clusters, as the host that PC is currently sitting on will be retired soon. What's the best way to go about this?
If I wanted to migrate from VMware ESXi 6.7 (no vCenter) to Nutanix AHV, is it possible to mount my existing VMFS6 formatted datastore into Nutanix, or would I have to move all the data off temporarily, re-create it in Nutanix, and copy it all back again?In other words, do I need to buy another 3TB of storage somewhere to temporarily move my data to while I reconfigure the storage array? :)Sorry if this questions seems simple!
We have a (older) Windows 2012 R2 VM with a OS Disk and a Data Disk (scsi.0 and scsi.1 respectively) running on AHV / AOS 22.214.171.124 LTSThe data disk (scsi.1) was originally created with 4kb allocation unit size (no NTFS disk compression is utilized) and this disk has reached it’s maximum size under NTFS of 16TiB. It’s also 96% full… 😟The custom application is such that mount points won’t work. It was suggested to see if perhaps Acronis Disk Director could safely change the drive’s allocation unit size from 4k to 64k (and preserve the data). To my knowledge formatting a drive is the only way to accomplish allocation unit size changes...Is changing the allocation unit a supported operation?Has anyone successfully made such a change?
Hello Guys, I have a scenario where the current nutanix environment NX-1065-G7 AOS version is 5.20 LTS and AHV version is 20201105.2030 and we are adding new node NX-1065N-G8 to the cluster. My plan is to upgrade foundation and NCC of the cluster to latest version and then image the new node with AOS and AHV version the same as in the current nutanix environment.What are the caution points I need to be aware while configuring the node and adding to the cluster?what are the risk factors involved?
RDP to guest vm’s running Windows Server 2022 are freezing a few seconds after connecting. Running latest VirtIO drivers 1.1.7. After rebooting the guest, RDP seems to work ok for an hour or so before freezing again. Guest memory utilization 48%, CPU 3-5% so no issue there.
Hello Guys, I have a scenario where the current nutanix environment NX-1065-G7 AOS version is 5.20 LTS and AHV version is 20201105.2030 and we are adding new node NX-1065N-G8 to the cluster. As I referred in documentation that the current nutanix environment version is not compatible with G8. Is it possible to image the new node with version 5.20 ?
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
I have need to stand up an ESXi nested VM for running a Singlewire Informacast VM that refuses to run on AHV natively. Following some blogs/guides, I’ve manually created a NIC with the e1000 model and it seems to work fine under ESXi 6.7 but the ESXi 7.0 installer won’t recognize the NIC. From what I’ve seen online, the e1000 driver might not be supported on ESXi 7.0 anymore.In any case, I wanted to see if anyone else has had any luck getting ESXi 7.0 working as a nested VM on AHV. Thanks.
Hello. I don't think it's a problem with Nutanix, but I want to check it out Have you seen any of these symptoms?So, as shown in the picture, there are two mouse points on the VM screen, so what should we do to solve these symptoms?The symptoms remain the same when the VM is restarted, and the settings have not been changed HX-7520, AOS 126.96.36.199, VM - SUSE 11
I have two clusters managed by a vCenter Server Appliance (v7.0). One of those clusters is a Nutanix cluster. All hosts in all clusters are running ESXi 6.5. There is no storage shared between the clusters. What is the best and easiest way to migrate the vCenter Appliance to the Nutanix cluster. I’m already configured to move other VMs using Enhanced Shared-Nothing vMotion and that is working fine. Can I use the same method to live migrate the vCenter Appliance to the Nutanix cluster? If possible to live migrate, should I set DRS to manual and disable HA on all clusters before live migrating the vCenter Appliance?
i wants to Migrate VMs from AHV cluster to AHV Cluster, my Source AHV Cluster running on AOS 188.8.131.52 LTS and destination cluster running on 184.108.40.206 LTS, so can configure Data protection and migrate VMs from source ahv cluster to destination ahv cluster with mismatch AOS version.?
Currently, the Nutanix cluster consists of three nodes.The Prime Element has 90% Cluster Memory usage.Data Resilience Status is indicated by "OK". I'm trying to add more memory to the node in this environment.If you change a node to maintenance mode for memory DIMM expansion, the VMs on that node will be migrated to another node. The average usage rate of re-memory is over 90%, will the migration be successful?The Fault Tolerable of Data Resilience is all "1"... I don't know for sure. I wonder if live migration is possible in this environment, and if not, do I need more nodes or downtime?
