Hello, I just  acquired a 3 node nutanix chassis. I have not had experience with a system like this and was wondering if there is an installation guide for setting up the hardware and getting CE installed & configured using all 3 nodes as a multi-node cluster.

Here’s the model of the system: NXS2U4NL12G500

Hi Bobby, just follow the normal CE installation guide: https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Nutanix-Community-Edition-Getting-Started-v2_0:top-installing-ce-t.html

Thank you!! This info is definitely helpful and different than the information I was finding. The only thing I’m not seeing in the guide is what to do about the IPMI port settings in the bios. I got this hardware from work and I know enough from my boss to confuse myself on bios setting and network setup within the bios lol.

Since they are nx nodes the bios should be setup correctly as that is how the boxes are shipped from the factory. 

We see thi error
