Unable to login to CVM post fresh installation of Nutanix CE


Hello All,

I freshly deployed Nutanix CE in my lab on top of existing Esxi infrastructure. Installation went fine and I am able to hit https://CVM-FQDN:9440 and was able to reset admin user password. On next screen where CVM is trying to authenticate my NEXT credentials, I am getting below error



During investigation I found that CVM IP can't reach internet. Following troubleshooting was performed:

* I allowed port 80/443/8443/53 on my firewall for any traffic coming from CVM IP and going outside.

* On CVM I verified that DNS and Search domain are pointing to my DC server.

But when I try to ping any public website, its not happening

I verified that my Cluster Status is UP



Also the portgroup where I placed the CE VM have Promiscuous and Forged Transmit set to Accept.

What else I a missing here?
