i have the exactly same issue, the vm cannot boot

resolve - install not from iso
resolve - install not from iso

So what did you install from? I am getting this error in two labs- using latest CE in nested on two different vcenter labs
Badge +3
install from usb flash copied from .img
Maybe I am not tracking; My error is a little different. I have tried both ISO and VMDK deployments to no avail. My libvirt error at the bottom is host I/O related. But over all same errors before that.

What exactly did you do to deploy a VM?
Same issue, from both ISO and VMDK.
Using current AHV version 20180425.199
Also same issue here...
is it normal that Nutanix is releasing Community Editions without some basic testing?
We also had issues with the last version as we have to modify some files in order to get the CVM up and running. This time it looks like as this bug was fixed but with new bugs that prevent a proper start of a virtual should it be possible to evaluate a product if there are basic functions missing like powering a VM?
So if CE is installed from ISO, what is the solution then to be able to start a VM?
Same issue here. does anybody has a solution for that? Is it possible to downgrade the Nodes to a working release?
