  1. Is there a cli command that will tell me which VMs do NOT have NGT installed?
  2. Is there a command that will show me CD-ROM status for all VMs? (e.g. No drive available, or drive not empty)

I know about ncc health_checks ngt_checks ngt_installer_version_check

Thanks

Hey @tromo , we have an amazing article which mentions how you can check the status of NGT on user VMs:

1)Check the status of NGT on UVM: You can check that in this KB http://portal.nutanix.com/kb/3741

 

2)Is there a command that will show me CD-ROM status for all VMs? (e.g. No drive available, or drive not empty): For this, you can use the command below acli command by running it one of the CVMs in the cluster:

cvm$ acli vm.get <VM_NAME>

This above will retrieve the full information of the VM, and specifically, if you want the list of disks attached and their status you can use:

cvm$ acli vm.disk_get <VM_NAME>

 

Here are the list of actions you can perform using acli for a UVM :https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details/?targetId=Command-Ref-AOS-v5_17%3Aacl-acli-vm-auto-r.html

 

And here is the ACLI command line tool guide: https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details/?targetId=Command-Ref-AOS-v5_17%3Aman-acli-c.html

 

You can go through these and get to know what all acli commands are available to use for managing what all entities in you Nutanix cluster. It is pretty handy :smile:

Let me know if you need anything else:smile:
