That's because we just posted it 🙂

Do you need some special permission to see it? All I can see is the discovery applet and iso_whitelist.json links.

We do not give Foundation OVA access to customers, as Foundation is built into the CVMs, which is what the discovery applet is intended to help with.

Past that, once the customer is running, foundation isn't needed with the exception of Node Adds, which is handled by the in-CVM foundation.

Foundation OVA is almost exclusively used by PS consultants and partners only, but even there the tide is turning to use the in-CVM foundation instead.

I see. We actually got a Nutanix box earlier this week to setup for a customer. I'm new with Nutanix and was trying to get ESXi installed following the Field Install Guide, which looks like it cleared out the Foundation install. And I can't continue without downloading the Foundation files. Can you recommend what else can I do from here?
Thanks

Serial number ending in 0291? If so, it looks like you have PS implementation services on your order. Our PS team would help you get that system going.

That's the one. We got it through CDW and my project manager is waiting to get the support contact from them. But it would be great if you can point me to how to contact your PS team.
Thank you very much.

I pinged them internally, they'll reach out to you folks to get it scheduled up.

Hi Jon,

I am a PS consultant for lenovo and trying to deploy a new nutanix cluster at customer site. I am having issue with node discovery from the java applet hence using the foundation VM. I canot see a list of older version of foundation VM than 3.5. Older version of Foundation is not listed in the download page.

I cant use 3.5 version because the HX patch for that version seems to have some issue and I am now left with falling back to the previous version of foundation and HX patch. Please help me find the older versio of Foundation VM.

Cheers,
Ganesh
