Hello Sirs!

I just want to inquire and ask if anybody has an idea if Nutanix has a plan to automate the processes of doing a shutdown of the cluster, entering a Node to Maintenance Mode and exporting VM that resides to a nutanix cluster and integrate this basic operation to their Prism Element or Prism Central GUI just as what the other HCI vendors? currently I belive these things is done via CLI only.

I know this is a easy task for a technical people and admin but I think it defies the "one click simplicity / one click operation" that is shown on presentation decks.

It would be great and probably an additional edge if processes like this is automated.

thanks 🙂
