Good day dears

I have 2 nutanix blocks, each 3 nodes , I have the following questions:

  1. I have vSphere license and I want to install it on the nodes, I only have prism element ( don`t have prism center) , should this work or I have to buy vCenter?
  2. While connecting the nodes to the same switch besides the firewall, should the switch be on access mode in order to Discover the nodes while using foundation, or I can segment the nodes through VLANS?

Hello,

You need vCenter so you will need license.

During Discovery and Foundation use flat switch (unmanaged switch) , connect only Nutanix Nodes and your laptop to it. After building the cluster you connect Nutanix nodes to production switches.
