Hi Jon,

It is for commercial Nutanix. No worrries, we've got the assistance from Nutanix Support. However, it is a bit hard for us to go through the log files to find the root cause of the issue. How I wish we can have a simpler way to look into the VM activities via Prism.

Cheers.

I think there are two sides to this situation from what I see

1 - When "system" level issues go wrong, where do you go?
2 - When "users" do things like reboot a VM, where does that task get tracked?

Both of those go to acropolis.log and acropolis.out on the CVM, ~/data/logs on each respective CVM, with some of the "system" things showing up in other logs, like stargate etc

We're making some improvements to #2, so you should see those showing up in the next few releases to prism.
