We have 5 Nutanix nodes based on Dell XC630 (single node) with one RF3 Container. I'm aware that we can handle a double-node failure (so 2 block in our configuration) but the Prism views seems to disagree with me :)
When I details the Data Resiliency panel, it seems to not understand the type of node per block we have:
Fault Domain Type: Host
Erasure Code Strip Size2
Fault Domain Type: Block
Erasure Code Strip Size1
That's why I'm asking for some explanations on this part, I'm agree with the Fault Domain Node but as we're owned a one node/block server type, the Fault Domain Block should louk exactly the same and print 2 instead of 1 Failures Tolerate ?

Since 1 node = 1 block in your system our normal node replciation will protect you from outages, rather then block awareness (which is just smart placement of resources across blocks). So you're still protected even if block awareness is wrong :)
I filed a bug to get that fixed as it doesn't make sense to show block awareness in 1node/block clusters.
