Error when trying to install 5.6 via the ISO method

Hello,

It seems that when booting the ISO using UEFI causes an error to be thrown when using Supermicro's IPMIView for KVM:


The error is "Terminal screen is not large enough to run the installation script. Please resize the terminal and rerun the script."

If you then press enter you get this:



One additional thing to note is that this cluster was originally setup using the image method long ago. Before I manually wiped all disk partitions, the UEFI boot would throw a different error about a mis-matched file system being found and it would hang the installer. After I manually removed all disk partitions and booted the ISO using UEFI, the errors above started. I will go back to the image method as I see other threads with issues after an ISO install. I don't know if there is any advantage or disadvantage to using UEFI for Nutanix CE anyway. Maybe someone can comment on it?

Didn't think a pure UEFI will work at all. Folks having issues with the latest NUCs that lack legacy support. Would suggest making sure legacy support is still enabled.

Thanks for the reply. The ISO does indeed boot properly using legacy. Legacy was enabled the whole time, I just decided to give UEFI a shot. :)

I am attempting an install using the ISO with Legacy to see if I have issues with partitioning like others have reported.

Iso seems super work in progress. Can't drop into root to tweak the scripts so the underlying platform needs to be right in its wheelhouse.

I am running supermicro gear so I am hoping its close enough to work. 🙂

Heh agreed best case for success. Seeing as the docs are still missing lots of room for improvement. #docless
Just started installing Nutanix for the first time ever.
Tried using the .iso attached through iDRAC Virtual Media on an R720xd and I get the exact same thing.

Glad to here it wasn't just me.

I suggest you to use the old method as seen here: https://next.nutanix.com/blog-40/part-i-how-to-setup-a-three-node-nuc-nutanix-ce-cluster-15257
I had same issue, ended up being video card(add on) in an HP Z420. Change and install went ok.
