Hi Team ,

I would like to know what is the default cluster id on a new nutanix node in the config json file.
I have edit my json file and unable to create cluster where failed genesis error.
I would like to know the default phrase?
example : {"rackable_unit_serial": "14SM15290032", "node_uuid": "f771faf1-5cc4-4653-961f-cad2fa96a15f", "node_serial": "ZM144S054999", "node_position": "A", "cluster_id":"15311", "rackable_unit_model": "NX-1050"}

What cluster id i should use? tried delete it but still cant create cluster.

If I understand correctly, you are adding a new node to an existing cluster?
Has the node being imaged with the same hypervisor?
What about NOS version?

What error is returned when you try to add the node?

Nope , i just edited my factory config json file and causing genesis error.
I forget what is my default cluster id on the file.

If the cluster is up & running (if there are enough healthy CVMs), run the command:
ncli cluster info
It will return the cluster ID, i.e:

ncli cluster info
Cluster ID : 1212

On a 4.x cluster:
ncli cluster info Cluster ID : 0005119d-9bc8-5117-0000-000000000272::626
In this case the number after the "::" is your cluster ID

If the cluster is not running, check the other CVM's factory config file, the lower cluster ID is the one to use.

Did you edited the factory_config.json file on all the nodes ?
If not, you can refer to any other node in the cluster and check its factory_config.json file.
