Apache Cloudstack / Vmware / Nutanix
We are using Apache Cloudstack 4.8.0 with Vmware 5.5 to to provide IAAS services . We want to use Nutanix as underlying infrastructure Is this implementation supported ? Is there any recommendations, best practices for deployment or a reference architecture? We also plan to have HA for a class of our vm whereas others should not be replicated. What kind of mapping between Cloudstack and Vmware organisation units, and Nutnaix Protections domains strategies should we have to achieve this goal. If none of the above is supported is Apache Cloudstack in Nutanix roadmap on Vmware or AHV ? Thank you in advance

Prism Central monkey always happy
I just upgraded our Prism Central to version 5.7.1 and noticed that the widget with the banana-holding monkey never changes when we get an alert from one of our managed clusters. I removed and re-added the widget from the PC console but it still never updates when we receive an new alert. Grated, this is not very important but has anyone else seen this issue?
Lenovo HX failed to convert and use foundation to setup
I have 3 nodes of Lenovo HX and running on ESXi. As we need to use Acropolis, we decided to do one click conversion and the process failed by first node unable to boot up with anything and boot up with phoenix# boot. Decided to do a reimage of the cluster so use foundation 3.5 with AHV and 2 nodes manage to install but the same failed node failed to install and stuck at 17%. Upgraded firmware and tried manual installation using AHV and later ESXi together with phoenix disc and the same node still failed while running phoenix. Attached the screenshot of the error. Appreciate any help. Thanks.[img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/2044iB40DE4C80E55BBC9.jpg[/img]
Quick tip: how to deploy a VM from an OVF to AHV
You have a nice OVF or an OVA image and you are ready to deploy that virtual appliance to AHV. There is just one more step required. Well, maybe more than one. It is not possible to import OVA and OVF files to AHV. Extraction of the files of the image as well as upload of the VMDK files is required prior to deployment.Please follow instructions provided in KB-3621 AHV: Import OVA and OVF image
Zeus configuration cache is not created; try again later
When trying to use the allssh "manage_ovs ...." I get the above error. As I understand it Zeus and Zookeeper are close friends(as one would expect). Zookeeper implements the cluster configuration information while Zeus is used by other cluster components to access it? Somewhere I read that when you manually add a new node to a cluster Zookeeper on that new node is not active? Any information would be appreciated (even rabbit holes). thx.
Which 10G SFP+ LR are supported for use with 8035-G5 and 6035C-G5 ndoes?
Hi, which 10G SFP+ LR (single mode) modules are supported in Nutanix NX-8035-G5 and NX-6035C-G5 nodes with C-NIC-10G-2-SI 10G network interface cards? Do the SFP+ need special branding, as e.g. for use with Cisco switches? Thanks, Erik
Third-party backup snapshots are present in the cluster longer than the configured threshold.
Should you see message similar to “Third-party backup snapshots are present in the cluster longer than the configured threshold.” and wonder where it comes from keep on reading — you’re in for a treat!The NCC health check aged_third_party_backup_snapshot_check checks the cluster for dangling third-party backup snapshots that may be present for a protection domain. If a third-party backup snapshot has existed in the system for longer than the specified period, this check will raise an alert. These backup snapshots are snapshots that are generated from 3rd party backups (Veeam, Commvault, Rubrik, HYCU, etc.).The check passes if third-party backup snapshots are not present in the cluster longer than the configured threshold. The default threshold is 7 days, but this threshold value can be modified. The threshold can range from 1 day to 365 days.Administrators may specify how long a third-party snapshot is expected to be present in the cluster through Prism UI. This check is based on the b
Foundation preconfiguration JSON
Is there a KB or documentation providing the JSON format and any additional things that may be coded in? For example, in going through the install.nutanix.com portal to generate the JSON file it doesn't ask for NTP server of the hypervisor. In looking at the file, though, there's this line: "hypervisor_nameserver": "188.8.131.52", I'd like to have our Nutanix deployments in code as much as possible (right now we're looking to various scripts for vSphere configurations). Being able to configure as much as possible up front and possibly make this a template for future deployments.
remote site Metro-Witness Network configuration
Hi guys ! I'm planning to deploy a metro cluster for my current customer and I have some troubles finding a precise guide to Network Metro Witness configuration. I know that it should be 200 ms RTT at max but that's it ? Will I be able to configure a L3 network or do I need to extend my L2 HCI network to the third site ? If L3 is an option (well hope so...) then what /where and how should I configure my clusters to communicate with witness ? Do someone have some info on this or should I open a support ticket ? best regards ! Thomas

Mix Node Cluster
Hello, I am trying to add one new node in my existing Dell Nutanix cluster, we use Dell XC Servers but due to some reason, I don't want Dell to be added as a new node so 4th node would be Nutanix powered hardware ..would that work? How about hardware compatibility ? especially for the processor.
shut down/start up procedures
Hello! I am looking to delegate the ability to shut down and start back up our Nutanix cluster to our team without providing the root nutanix passwords. Is it necessary to perform a cluster stop/start via SSH into a CVM, or can we shut down everything without stopping and starting the cluster? Thanks! Ryan
Nutanix CE - Cannot get to Prism Page
I have setup Nutanix CE in a lab environment but I cannot get to the Prism page when browsing to the CVM IP address. I'm getting the message: [b]Prism services have not started yet. Please try again later.[/b] Although I have run [b]cluster status[/b] and the Prism service is up and running: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/ccea7730-811f-4020-ace9-ce68004a0597.png[/img] It is a single node setup on VMWare. I can ping the CVM IP and SSH onto the CVM. Any assistance would be gratefully received! Thanks.
Remote site connectivity not normal
Hi A remote site on AWS has been configured earlier. The time sync drifted too far but that has been fixed. The remote site in Data Protection has this alert "Remote site connectivity not normal." It is an AWS instance. The remote CVM IP address is 10.162.10.115. The host ipaddress is unknown, the firewall rules are fully open and replication seems to be occuring. There is a site to site VPN specificaly for this instance It looks as though the aWS remote site was never configured with the local cluster as a remote site which is what most of the webinars and documentation suggest. The IP address will not open a web page on http or https, the only communication available to the AWS node is SSH. How does the configurationof the remote site get completed or how do I get rid of this alert ?? Prisim: 5.6.1 NCC Version: 3.5.2 LCM Version: 1.4.2381 Nutanix 20170830.124 (in cluster, standard AWS instance) Thanks
"Non-standard networking settings" - Hyper-v Upgrade
[img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/b8a1aafd-e0a8-4688-9589-ec6086c51acc.jpg[/img]Hello I am attempting to upgrade a Hyper-v 2012 R2 Cluster to 2016. I've completed the necessary Kerberos settings, however I am receiving an error during the pre-upgrade check "Non-Standard Network Settings, cannot proceed with hypervisor upgrade" This makes me sad :sleepy: the KB number referenced does not exist so I'm a bit of a loss on what to do next. Is there anyway to find out what it thinks the non-standard settings are - or perhaps work out what it think standard should be? TIA Dave
Nutanix CE installation issue.
Hi All, I did use Nutanix CE on a standalone server before for testing and for backup recovery test. Today I was trying to install the new CE version ce-2018.05.01-Stable. The previous version I used was CE0-2017.05.22-Stable. Now the hardware is same. 1x 240 GB SSD, 2x 500 GB HDD, 3x 1TB HDD. 128 GB RAM Boot from USB. 3x 1 TB drives are in Raid0 - Storage 2x 500 GB drives are in Raid0 - ISO's 1x 240 GB drive is in Raid0 - OS - (I tried this with Raid and with out raid.) this time when it is checking the disks it says "MinimumRequirementsError: A set of disks matching the minimum requirements was not found" is there any changes to the minimum hardware requirements with new version of CE? Please help me with this. Thank you, Krishna
Portable Foundation - Windows 10
Sorry if this topic has already been covered. I have been trying to use the new "Portable Foundation" app that runs on windows to image a cluster without using a VM. Every time I try (three so far) I get errors that the IPs I have provided are already used. I am using a flat switch and the 10G and 1G are unplugged from the customers switches. I have tried with my laptop in and out of airplane mode, with the firewall on and off and still receive the errors. The only difference is that each time I try, the listed IP conflicts are never the same. It will tell me in the first try that x, y, and z are in use, then the second time it may say that a, b, and y are in use. Any ideas? I really like the idea of this app working. Thanks, -David [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/d0b2826a-077a-429a-84fe-be3b71f35256.png[/img]

Schedule auto-reboot of hyper-v host
Hello guys, I have a question regarding schedule auto-reboot of nutanix hyper-v nodes. Understand there is a cau preupdate powershell script to auto reboot the node 1 by 1 and ensure CVM is up and running before executing reboot action on the next node. Is there a similar script we can use so that we can schedule auto reboot the Hyper-V nodes 1 by 1 without having the risk of all the nodes / CVM or cluster down at the same time? Thanks. Regards, Tze Siong
