We are attempting to install the latest version of vmware tools across multiple clusters (12.0.0). Currently it requires a restart of the host if upgrading to 12 via lifecycle man and a baseline. However, if i do it manually via esxcli software vib update or install, it does not require an update. When i try to push this out to one of our test clusters via a cvm and the command: hostssh ‘esxcli software vib update -d /vmfs/volumes/tehdatastore/Tools12/Tools12.zip’, it completes properly but times out and moves to the next host before the output stating it completed successfully etc, giving an error stating it timed out instead (to be clear, it does actually run against all the hosts properly). Is there any way of adding a no timeout switch to the hostssh command (or perhaps just a larger timeout)? Upgrade was verified using hostssh ‘esxcli software vib list | grep tools'. Also within vcenter it now shows updates available to the vm’s etc. So this does work, it just looks bad whe

Hi everyone, I have made différents test to install Windows server VM either 2022 and 2019 specifically on scsi disk emulation, but I didn’t succeed. It always ends in a bsod or in a infinite wait for partitionning or writing to the scsi disk.however installing on sata is direct with no problems.I am using last virtio drivers from ISO here: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/latest-virtio/on AOS 5.20.So I may do something wrong, or use some bad drivers, so please if you’re able to give me directions to successfully install windows server on scsi disk please do.
Can someone provide a brief explanation of Nutanix local key manager and how it handles the following in ‘???’:key access: access to the management console is restricted to authorized individuals abased on job function. changing / updating keys: encryption keys are updated from the management console, software encryption (rekey button) if necessary. revoking keys: ??? (when does revoking keys happen?) recovery keys: ??? (how do you recover if you have the key backup?) archiving keys: keys are archived (backed up) from the management console, managed keys where you download the key backup by setting up a recovery password to decrypt the backup file. activity logs: ??? (is there activity logs for keys? If yes, where is this stored and how long is the retention before the activity is overwritten?)BTW: I have this link already Native Local Key Manager (nutanix.com) but is does not have any details of the Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,We have 3x Nutanix clusters in North America and Singapore all with daily alert as below:“The host (x.x.x.x) is not synchronizing with any NTP server. This might occur if none of the configured NTP servers are available or you are currently experiencing network instability determined by the high offset/high jitter.”TAC telling us have to replace with Linux OS based NTP services to resolve this issue.Is there any solution or workaround to make NTP sync with MS NTP properly eq. patching etc. ?
Hello everyone,I currently have several old VMs that have been turned off for more than 2 years. No one in my workplace can tell me or remember what are they for. I am considering deleting them (to release storage), but before doing that is there something I should check before? Could those VMs be connected with online VMs in anyway for production?Could I take a useful snapshot, even though I will delete the VM afterwards?

Just a basic quick question I’d like confirmation on if possible. In a Nutanix Metro availability configuration (ESXi stretched cluster stretched across two sites) do all the CVM’S from both clusters have to be on the same Layer 2 Network to be supported?

HiI'm hoping someone has a similar setup. I originally posted this question a month or so ago but the answer I received isn't correct. The post has been marked as solved so I'm unable to reply hence why I'm opening a new one. I think there was a misunderstanding with my described setup in the previous post so I've tried to make it clearer here. This is tricky to explain without diagrams so I appreciate this may be difficult to provide a valid answer and I may not get a response.Our SetupWe have a 2 sites connected by fast links with one Nutanix cluster at each site (16 nodes in each Nutanix cluster). These two Nutanix clusters make up 1 stretched ESXi cluster hosting mainly Window servers. We then use Metro availability to replicate between these sites\Nutanix clusters.So in short - One ESXI cluster that's stretched across two sites and we use Nutanix Metro to synchronously replicate.On this environment we host a number of VM guest failover SQL clusters (2 nodes in each cluste

Sometimes you have to mount an ISO, and historically, the only methods to achieve this on G6 and G7 platforms were: 1) by using the IPMI Java console or 2) by mounting the ISO directly from a CVM (KB-4616) With BMC 7.11, we have an added option to mount the ISO directly from the HTML5 IPMI console. For more details, please check out BMC 7.11 release notes and upgrade today for this and many more new features and security enhancements!

Hello,I need to create several Windows Server 2019 standard, virtual machines that run in AHV (Nutanix cluster of 3 nodes nx-3170-g8, with 2x16 cores in each node) hosts that i need to buy licenses for. But i do not seem to find a calculation method for licenses).I found that i can go for per core licensing of physical cores (3*2*16 = 96 cores) which would help reduce costs since the total number of virtual cores that need to be configured is more than 200 v-cores.i would like to confirm if this approach is correct? i.e. licensing the number of the physical cores of nutanix appliances? and if anyone did it successfully?Thank you in advance,
