Hi Rajesh


There is an official documentation that describes how you deploy Nutanix Files:



 I have read it but i want to ask you whether is there any need of buying any subscription or not?

Hi Rajesh


The first 1TiB of Nutanix Files is free. Hope this helps you.

@Anda On creating the file server the pre-requisite of that is Download or Upload File Server Software.

But on opening that I can see No available versions for upgrade.

what to do now?

@JeroenTielen no available download is showing .
