Hi,

I downloaded iso installer with this link : http://download.nutanix.com/ce/2020.09.16/ce-2020.09.16.iso

and I try to install from virtualbox with 100GB disk and 8GB ram.

And I get an “Cannot illuminates the chassis led” error during installation process.

 

I would like to continue installing process, does anyone have any idea on this error ?

 

I looked through other post that got similar error, these posts and their resolution seems to be outdated.

Hi Chie7AiRee8h,

 

What node model does this chassis contain?

 

Also, Can you check to see if the node is physically OK?

 

Thanks,

Raaji

 

I am getting the same error with both VirtualBox and on bare metal hardware (Dell PE R710)

Hi thanks for your answer,

as Team140 said, I’m also trying to run on a vm with virtualbox without success.

Hi,

I’ve got the same error while installing in a vm on a ESXi 7.0 (Dell PE R240). The idea was a nested test on my server using the newest image “ce-2020.09.16.iso”. I followed this guide https://www.virtualizationhowto.com/2019/04/install-nested-nutanix-ce-in-vmware-vsphere-esxi-6-7-update-1/ to prepare the vm. But started the installer from the .iso because there was no .img in this release.

Any idea how to fix? Or should I fall back to the older version “ce-2019.11.22-stable.img.gz” with the .img.

Best regards

Me too. 

I’m trying to set up a single node cluster for evaluation. Just a desktop i7-7700k with a sata SSD and a spinny drive. 

In my case it seems like the error is on hdparm, which is trying to execute against the usb thumb drive the machine is booted from.

I have this issue too installing on a physical host.  It never makes it to the initial configuration screen. I’ve been able to successfully install CentOS on this box so I think the HW is okay. Anyone have an ideal how to fix it?

I found the answer!  In my case, it was an unsupported Realtek NIC that was the problem.  There’s a good guide to fix that in this troubleshooting guide: FAQ - Troubleshooting Common Nutanix CE Issues | Nutanix Community
