We have a UTM with 6 interfaces that go to separate subnets. Each subnet has a ToR Switch. The UTM handles the routing. We are installing a new Nutanix 4 node Block and virtualization physical servers. Assuming that we have 6 physical servers and each server is on a separate subnet, what would our network diagram look like if we included the Nutanix Block? Would we need another switch that has the 6 subnets vlanned, ie: 1 connection from the block and then based on the traffic destination send the traffic out through the vlan port to the ToR switch in the destination subnet?

Best practices is to attach the nutanix nodes in a leaf/spine method. Attach each node to two leafs. Make sure that cvm's and host's (hypervisors) are in the same, unrouted, subnet/vlan. You can add trunks to the nodes to separate virtual machines in different vlans.
