Deploy VM on Nutanix AHV with Satellite
Hello,Is there a way to deploy Linux Server on Nutanix AHV with RedHat Satellite? I can’t add compute resource in Infrastructure/Compute Resources in Satellite GUI I opened a case on RedHat side and they told me :“The RFE (Request for feature enhancement) has been raised with respect to Bugzilla #2010211, however, the Red Hat Satellite Engineering team has confirmed that this RFE will not be implemented.”Does anyone succeeded to deploy VM On Nutanix with Satellite ?I’m not talking about virt-who, this part is working.

How to properly deal with UEFI and Windows Server 2022 ?
HiAs Microsoft advise / Windows Server 2022 isn’t Legacy BIOS compatible anymore, i have to set up a brand new template using UEFI.However, if i tick “EFI” and Secure Boot from VM configuration or not, I can’t boot on my ISO at all. It still go to EFI Shell or in the UEFI Menu.I also tried to update VirtIO drivers directly into my Windows image (on install.wim and boot.wim on all indexes) but i can’t go so far in the installation part. Does anyone was able to use EFI settings with Windows Server 2022 ? If yes, what was your settings ?
Integrate 2 tenant network
We have 2 Nutanix prism tenants and would like to share the VM resources to keep the logs such as the SNMP logs and Syslog together, Our local services suggest having 2 public IPs to connect it with the VPN tunnel. Is it possible to configure the virtual network for this solution without the Public IP?I’m not sure it is the best practice to connect 2 local tenants with the VPN tunnel so the packet will route through the public network.
How to get Metrics for applications/services running in a VM on Nutanix?
Hello guys, I am aware of the application discovery and monitoring feature that comes with prism pro to get the metrics for apps running inside vms. But currently it offers support for only vcenter and mssql server. Is there any other way from nutanix or any third party software that can be leveraged to achieve this?
Upgrade cluster from 5.20 to 6.5.2 using LCM
Greetings all,Testing out an upgrades I have faced some problems upgrading cluster from 5.20 straight to 6.5.2 AOS version using dark site web server. Even though the Upgrade Path shows that such upgrade is supported, and I was able to upgrade all the other components including the AOS itself using Prism LCM. The only problem is that after Performing Inventory and even after the upgrade complete it does not show AHV version changed or the upgrade available and the AHV version stays the same. I have tried to perform Direct Upload too and even though I could see the uploaded AHV version I still was unable to upgrade it. Upgrade to 188.8.131.52 version went successful, however. So I had to try it with 184.108.40.206 and the result stays the same as with 6.5.2First I tried to upgrade fromAOS 220.127.116.11 AHV 20201105.2096 → AOS 6.5.2 AHV 20220304.342then after reimaging the cluster toAOS 18.104.22.168 AHV 20201105.2244 → AOS 6.5.2 AHV 20220304.342.Both upgrades showed same results, then after reimaging the c
Windows Server 2008 SP2 x64 Virtualization with AHV ...
Hello guys, I managed to create a new VM running Windows Server 2008 SP2 x64 with the help of the Fedora Redhat VirtIO drivers. Everything works fine so far. Question now ... has anbody managed to get the current Nutanix Guest Tools to run inside? I downloaded SHA-2 Microsoft Patches KB4474419 and KB4493730 for Windows Server 2008 x64, installed them and rebooted but the installation of Nutanix Guest Tools still fails. Any ideas? Thanks
Non impacted services
Hello,I have been searching for KB(s) that show the services we can restart without an impact on the cluster (wither a single node or more) such as genesis stop cluster_health in KB 13150, do we have such information that we can use without the need to open a case with support? BR
Launch VM Authentication
Hello,We have a scenario where we need to grant access to console VM's to some users without this users have access to prism. Do you know if exist some way that bypass authentication to launch console VM? Maybe a API call that I can pass this authentication in a code, for example? I know that in url vm, I can inform the uuid of VM's the access works, but I need grant access without directly logon on prism Thanks
ubuntu 22.04 cloud images (img or ova)
For installing a Ubuntu Server Cloud image is it still required to customize it to add the serial port as described in a 2-year old article in this forum for installing Ubuntu Server Cloud. Also do Ubuntu Server 22.04 OVA images work or must use .img? See: Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish) 
Alert on resilient capacity of a cluster
There is an option to have the Storage widget turn yellow when the cluster reached a warning threshold of resilient capacity. This feature does not appear to trigger an alert in Prism Elements. Are there any options to make this trigger an alert or are there options to alert on the resilient capacity of the cluster? Managing the capacity based on anything else creates more management overhead when each cluster has to have the capacity calculated individually and the thresholds set/reset with cluster changes. Since this widget is already doing the calculation it seems redundant to have to edit the storage pool alerts on every cluster. This is an example of the Storage Widget with the warning triggered. But the storage pool has not triggered an alert based on these numbers because it doesn’t take into consideration the resilient capacity.
What is ICAP and integration with Nutanix files
ICAP stands for internet content adaption protocol is an open standard being adopted to connect devices to enterprise-level virus scan engine . same way with the nutanix files is to enable communication with external servers hosting third-party anti-virus software to scan inbound data (files) in transit via Secure Proxy before sending it to the backend destination server.ICAP WORKFLOWThe ICAP service runs on each Nutanix Files file server and can interact with more than one ICAP server in parallel to support horizontal scale-out of the antivirus server. The scale-out nature of Files and one-click optimization greatly mitigate any antivirus scanning performance overhead. If the scanning affects Nutanix Files FSVM performance, one-click optimization recommends either increasing the virtual CPU resources or scaling out the FSVMs. This feature also helps both the ICAP server and Files scale out, ensuring fast responses from the customer’s antivirus vendor WHY Nutanix files integration with
Guest Windows 2003 NIC malfunction after moving it to AHV
We have migrated a few Windows 2003 server VMs running on Nx / ESX to a new AHV cluster but in one of them after 3-4 hours the principal guest VM NIC stops responding and the VM has to be rebooted. We have tried deleting and adding the NIC manually with the same result so we had to roll back and boot that specific VM on the old Nutanix / ESX cluster. We plan to upgrade Fedora drivers to latest instead of stable and maybe change some network registry settings according to W2k3 best practices. Has anyone experienced this before? Any advice will be welcome.
