Here is the documentation: https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Field-Installation-Guide-v5_3:fie-nodes-discover-c.html

But, if you configured IPMI already then it is easier to just foundation the nodes without discovery. Add the nodes manually in foundation with the configured impi ip-address and name/password.

Hello @Jayakumar 

Make sure that the switch supports IPv6 and it’s enabled. because discovery uses IPv6 multicast.
