Hi Bart,

I'm currently looking at doing the same with the same DL380 G7. I was just wondering if you had any suggestions or tips on setting up the hardware. Any thing you can suggest is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Andre

Hello Andre,

I found a guide to install the nodes,
but I made a step by step guide to make a cluster off it.
Because there is a raid controller where is not the support of HBA you'll need to make a raid 0 for all the disks.
Also for the Nutanix software I used a high performance sd card.
If you want to use 5.5 ensure you have intel nics installed in the server, otherwise it won't work.
So please use the 5.1 version with Broadcom.

I will embed a link wich is available for 3 days.

Sorry Bart, I didn't notice this response. Mind re enabling the link one more time. This time i'm going to be sure to pay close attention to your response. I was surprised on how fast you responded, thanks for that.

Thanks,

Andre
