Hi all, I have two Nutanix Files (FS1 & FS2) created in the same cluster, FS1 has replication protection and 3 shares created (e.g. share1, share2, share3), FS2 is local protection only with 2 shares (e.g. share4, share5) created. Due to business need, share4 would need replication protection. Is there any way to migrate share4 from FS2 to FS1 online?
Is there a way to turn on indexing or something equivalent so that searching a SMB file share with hundreds of thousands of files actually returns a result, rather than sitting and spinning forever? It used to work back before we migrated this share from Windows Server to Nutanix Files share, but I’m wondering if maybe Windows Server had the files/folders indexed.
Hello.After upgrading AOS and AHV (upgraded from AOS 5.10.1 to 184.108.40.206), I attempted to upgrade from Files 3.20 to 220.127.116.11.The first attempt to upgrade the File Server out of a total of four File Servers failed.After the VM update and VM NIC update, the VM change power state experienced a long time of Hang, and after 30 minutes the "File server upgrade task Hung for too long" alert was generated.An hour later, the "File Server upgrade task stuck" alert was generated and the File Server task stopped at 44%.I tried to force restarting that server and restarting all file servers, but it was not resolved.After restarting all file servers, the afs command was also unavailable on the CVM.The cluster status of the file server that attempted the upgrade is currently in the DOWN state.The Minerva service does not start and does not start the cluster.The shares of the files are serviced by NFS, the connection is normal, and the data can be read/write normally.However, Data Protection (DP) has st
I have encountered a peculiar situation here. I am synchronizing two file shares, and everything appears to have been copied successfully. However, there is one folder that doesn't show up in the target file explorer. I am certain it was copied because I can see it in the log. Additionally, if I attempt to create the same folder in the target location, I receive an error stating that the folder already exists, and it creates a new one with a '(1)' appended at the end. I have ensured that the hidden view is enabled in the file explorer. Any thoughts on what might be causing this issue?
HI,I can no longer access File Analytics web page, I'm afraid that some service has not started.I tried to SSH into the VM console but I can't login with any password both with root and nutanix user.How can I force a password change or alternatively remove the current Analytics and reinstall it?
I need assistance in resolving a problem with File Analytics, which indicates that my memory has exceeded 90%. I update the VM and add 8 GB after it displays the critical error "One or more File Analytics VM components have failed." I did a power reboot, but nothing changed. Please assist.

Good evening, Following problem:I do have a single folder sitting on one of my shares, and I tried literally everything to get it deleted.When trying to delete, or move to a different share, I only get the error “An unexpected network error occured”, so, not very helpful on that front.I was able to change said folders owner (logged into CVM via ssh → logged into FSVM) via afs share.get_authorization_info <share> <folder>However, this didn't help.To make a long story short: Is there a way to delete a folder within a share on a FSVM directly?Thanks in advance!
Veeam Backup for Nutanix File server SMB Share backup - From Snapshot path? Currently we are backing up the Nutanix file share backups using Veeam backup (NAS SMB file share) Current settings:Backup Directly from FIle shareThis option is skipping some of the locked files whcih is expected…Would like to change it to Backup from storage snapshot at the following path:? I would like to know what would be the snapshot path for Nutanix file SMB shares? what I need to give here? Can someone suggest so that I can avoid skipped files issue on the backup jobs
I have what, I think, should be a simple request, but for the life of me I’m struggling with it. My boss would like a list of all file shares in Nutanix Files with a count of files inside those shares. I cannot seem to find a way to report on this via Files Dashboard or Analytics. A simple .csv export would be fine. If I drill down into an individual share, I can see the data I need, but I am not really keen on doing that for approximately 100 shares.
I have a customer currently deploying Nutanix Files and they are looking to use File Analytics in place of their current audit tool, Lepide.They are happy with the file-level audit trails in FA, but have asked if the same audit trails are available for Shares - e.g. Is there a log anywhere of who created a specific Share, who last modified it, or who deleted it? I can’t find an answer to this in the documentation, and if I create a share in the Files Demo all I get is an “Event” in the Files console which doesn’t tell me who did it.
