Do not store any sort of scripts you run on the CVM's.

Not supported by Nutanix support, but a neat idea.

Thanks Jon. Assume we have 2 cluster Primary & DR. Primary is running on VMware whereas DR is with AHV. Can I keep one VM specifically for storing scripts & execution or can I store it on CVM of either site. Is it possible for you to guide me on it? I'll try to test it with CE. Thanks

Depends on what you're trying to optimize for, and where you want the failover logic to run.

We support VMW SRM, and have a certified SRA, so if you want to go that route, you can do that.

If you don't want to use SRM, you're in for some scripting, and the big question is really where are those scripts going to run, and how will they get initiated in the case of true DR.

Once you figure those two questions out, the rest is just figuring out the right calls and commands.
