Seeking for advice, I have 3 nodes cluster having problem with node B DIMM is undetected. I’m planning to reseat my DIMM, if I will just manually move the VMs to node A and C then perform a shutdown on node B without entering maintenance mode does the VM will join back to node B?

Can please also share a link to a document to refer for the procedure.

Hello Carlo,

Please navigate to the the Nutanix Support Portal >> Documentation >> Hardware Replacement Documentation ( and select Memory; filter out the desired hardware models using the drop-downs at the top right corner of the page. You can also find hypervisor specific documents.

Please note that these are documents for Memory replacements, but you can use it for reseating as well.

VM migration back to the affected node B again depends on your hypervisor settings and cluster workload as well. It is strongly recommended to place the host into maintenance mode for this activity.
