Using LCM to update Foundation to version 5.4 I am finding that it consistently fails on Lenovo hardware.I’ve tried two clusters so far that were both at AOS version 6.5.2 but both LCM updates of Foundation to version 5.4 failed.Ominously there is mention in the Field Installation Giude for Foundation 5.4 (link below) that “Software Update” should not be used to update Foundation on Lenovo platforms, and advises to use the command line instead.It worked when using the command line, so my question is: what’s going wrong when LCM attempts this?https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Field-Installation-Guide-v5_4:fie-upgrade-foundation-vm-c.htmlWhat tends to happen is that most nodes except 1 or 2 are successfully updated, with the remaining node neeing to be done by hand from the command line.
HiNutanix 22.214.171.124What is the difference for the following storage containers, except the replication factor, compression, etc..) ? I mean what is meant to be placed for the certain containers.For example, when I deployd Prism Central, then there was an option between “default-..” and “SelfServiceContainer”, so my question is, which is for what (images, VM’s, etc..)..?Thanks.RegardsRaul

HiWe are planning on deploying new nutanix clusters. I was wondering, is there an alternative for microsoft active directory authentication as well ?Here I read MS AD, Open LDAP.https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/kbs/details?targetId=kA00e000000CxcyCAC My question is, does it support freeIPA as well for IPMI (mgmt ilo) and prism (central) ? RegardsRaul
Hi…I recently was called from a client with an old nx-1065-g4, and running aos 126.96.36.199 (i asumme was never updated).Solved hardware problem and rebuild the node building phoenix iso from a newer nx and installer from original cvm.I wonder if the latest AOS 4 branch (188.8.131.52) is available somewhere so I can also upgrade the system to a newer 5 or 6 branch, as recommended upgrade path.My client has no support contract.Is it possible to find these old packages?Thanks
Hello Nutanix expertsI have a question for youAmong the functions of Nutanix, the alert is known as a good function that can immediately inform the status of the clusterAs far as I know, if you don't press the resolve on the prism, the alarm that occurred once will not recurThrough the filter of the alert, I checked if I pressed auto reserve or manual reserveIs there a reason why the alert occurs again when it is not applicable to both options I'd appreciate it if you could explain it ============================================================================For example, a routine inspection conducted in the previous month asks the customer to confirm that the alert is a new alert because the alert has been reactivated even though the customer is aware of it

I’ve been trying to create webhooks using Nutanix API V3 (using Nutanix API explorer) and it works fine. The only problem I’ve been getting is to send some custom parameters along with the payload. Let’s say I want to send a custom parameter named cluster ip and value is “10.247.xxx.xx”. It’s just an example, but I want to receive this custom parameter whenever the event is triggered (so basically send this when event is sent to my webhook URL). I’ve tried googling it but no use. I cannot seem to find anything in documentation as well. Is there anyone WHO can help me with this?

Can someone provide a brief explanation of Nutanix local key manager and how it handles the following in ‘???’:key access: access to the management console is restricted to authorized individuals abased on job function. changing / updating keys: encryption keys are updated from the management console, software encryption (rekey button) if necessary. revoking keys: ??? (when does revoking keys happen?) recovery keys: ??? (how do you recover if you have the key backup?) archiving keys: keys are archived (backed up) from the management console, managed keys where you download the key backup by setting up a recovery password to decrypt the backup file. activity logs: ??? (is there activity logs for keys? If yes, where is this stored and how long is the retention before the activity is overwritten?)BTW: I have this link already Native Local Key Manager (nutanix.com) but is does not have any details of the Thanks in advance.

Hello,I would like to change the password expiration for a local user I have created in the prism element.I’ve tried to change it via the command:nutanix@cvm$ sudo chage -M <MAX-DAYS> admin I’ve managed to do that to the admin user, but when I change “admin” with my local user, It says that the user does not exist in etc/passwd. Is their any way of changing the password expiration for a local user that it is not “admin”.(The user is a cluster admin).
