Hi there

Check under the 3.5 docs, it should be labled Physical_Installation_Guide-NX1000_NX3050_NX6000_NX7000.

Hello dlink7,

refer to Overview of the guide:Nutanix installs the Nutanix Operating System (NOS) Controller VM and the KVM hypervisor at the factory before shipping each node to a customer. To use a different hypervisor (ESXi), nodes must be re-imaged in the field. This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to re-image nodes (install a hypervisor and then the NOS Controller VM) after they have been physically installed at a site.

Thanks anyway.

I logged onto Nutanix using and went to support. In the search field, I typed "Field Installation Guide" and got the results. The 3.7 version was at the top of the list. I'm a partner so maybe I get access to a little bit more. But I'm pretty sure this is a customer available link.
