We've got two blocks with a total of seven nodes. We need to set up an ethernet interface on a node which will be used to pass all network traffic to our SIEM solution. I've read about how to do this with ESXi when your farm is running on traditional infrastructure, but I'm not sure how to accomplish this in Nutanix. Is it possible to assign a single physical NIC to an ESXi virtual machine on Nutanix?

With Nutanix running ESXi, this is no different that the traditional method for ESXi that you've read. Just pick a network adapter that isn't being used in an existing vSwitch for Nutanix traffic or guest traffic, and dedicate that uplink to a new monitoring vSwitch and port group.
