All,I've tried to get a lab system running using one of these version of Nutanix CE, ce-2015.11.05-stable.img and ce-2016.06.30-stable.img, to no avail. Although my system does not exactly match the one described, I assumed I could follow some of the recipes and comments provided and get Nutanix CE installed.

Here's the hardware I'm using (verified good):+ Intel NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK Mini PC- Samsung 950 PRO Series - 256GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V5P256BW)= Slot M2-A- Samsung 950 PRO Series - 512GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V5P512BW)= Slot M2-B- Kingston Technology HyperX Impact 32GB Kit (2x16GB)2400MHz DDR4 CL14 260-Pin SODIMM Laptop HX424S14IBK2/32

The hardware works great, as I tested it the latest Windows 10 Enterprise installed - very fast!

I made lots of recommended changes to the python scripts but cannot get beyond a check in"File pheonix/imagingUtil.py, line 506, in image_node""largest = /dev/ + largest[0]""TypeError: NoneType object has no attribute __getitem__"
I'm assuming this fails due to commenting out code in minimumRequirements.py -> CE_checkDisks so I could get to the setup screen.

Very frustrating! Any ideas, or does someone actually have scripts that work to share? Since we are touting Nutanix, any guidance you might provide me with would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi Richard, the issues you're experiencing are due to CE not supporting NVMe based SSD's as yet.

Currently tentative - you should see this before the end of the calander year.

One thing I can't find anywhere is if CE allows you to use a different hypervisor like vsphere or is it limited to AHV only?

It is AHV only. There have been some threads about nesting ESX inside AHV but that's it.
