vCenter registered but connection is no stabilized
Hi,I am implementing a Nutanix Cluster with Lenovo HX5520, when I register the Prism in vCenter the process appears as completed but I cannot create virtual machines by Prism Element and when running the NCC I return communication errors with the vCenter is not stabilized. I did the communication test of the CVMs with the vCenter on ports 80 and 443 and the connection worked successfully. when checking by cli I see that the connection is ok, but it does not provide me with the settings of vcenter follows the difference from another implementation any idea what it might be?
vSphere Standard Switch
esxi 6.5 u2 vSwitch configured as 1 active uplink and 1 standby uplink on esxi nutanix. I didnt understand why the standby adapter in which scenarios. I wonder why and in what scenarios it is used. can i use both 10 GB network adaptor active-active mode in Virtual Standard Switches (VSS).
Active Directory configuration fails with "Directory config name is invalid"
I cannot seem to get Active Directory authentication configured and cannot figure out why. After following the directions in the support article "Configuring Authentication" I receive the message "Directory config name is invalid". Here is what I have tried: using the IP rather than the host name, turning off the firewall on the DC, using a different AD host, trying different ports (i.e. 389 and 3268), trying a different browser (firefox and IE), specifying the full directory path (/ou=,dc=,dc=) - nothing seems to work. I just keep getting the error message "Directory config name is invalid". I can ping the DC host from the CVM using the FQDN; firewall issues have been ruled out by turning off the firewall; the LDAP url is typed correctly. My thought is that this feature simply isn't working correctly on 4.1.3. Has anyone else experienced problems getting AD configured properly?
Vmotion and ESXi MGMT VLANS are different, CVM should have which VLAN?
Hello All, One of our customers decided to have Vmotion and ESXi MGMT on different VLANS and they will split the 10G connections. So for this kind of setup, which VLAN should CVM be in? Do you have any recommendations? Thank you so much...
First time using vmware upgrade manager on cluster
Just had the cluster installed. I'm going to patch my 5.5 installs, I put the first node into maintance mode and its just waiting for the CVM to power off or move. Should the CVM shutdown on its own or do I need to power it off before I patch and reboot? thanks,jb
Is IPMI connectivity mandatory
Hello, We are running out of network ports in our datacenter so we thinking of reclaiming the existing Nutanix IPMI network cables and instead use KVM dongles for those. I want to check with everyone here to make sure that there are no functional issues with loosing IPMI connectivity or does Nutanix need IPMI connectivity all the time. Let me know your recommendations.
Question on Local disk vs NFS Datastore
A rather simple question :) Once the NFS Datastore has been presented to the nodes, each node shows the NFS Datastore and the Local disk as available storage. My question is, how do others deal with this scenario? What is to stop an admin from storing data to the local data store as opposed to the NFS data store which is where you want them to store their VM's? Curious how others have dealt with this. Thanks, Sky
ECX error & disk id & svmotion
Hello Folks, I`m busy installing a 6 node cluster, some errors or doubt comes out along. my environment : 3 block, 6 nodes (2 nodes/block) AOS 4.6.2 一. When I create a new container, make the Enable Erasure coding button checked, error pops up"enable EC-X will break the current block awareness !" seems mean ECX will disable block level awareness ? 二. As many of us know, if need locate the physical slot location of a disk, you can simply led on that drive. but there is possibility led on function inaccurate or disabled, in this scenario, you must locate the disk by disk id rule, e.g shelf id.slot/bay ID, but the DISK ID in prism hardware section seems ramdom/ruleless number, I can`t locate physical location for a disk. 三. When I do the test about removing a node from nutanix cluster, A doubt appears: Do I need or is it the best practice to execute storage vmotion(other then only vmotion vm`s ) before removing the node ? I think the diffecrence of two methods is who is the data mov
Is your Hypervisor supported by Nutanix
Let say for example you're running ESXi 6.5 U1 and want to upgrade to the latest ESXi version but confused whether the current hardware and AOS will support the latest ESXi version.Nutanix gives you a feature to identify the compatability of different Hypervisors with NX environment easily using the Compatibility Matrix. You just need to visit the compatibility matrix page, filter by using your hardware and AOS and you will see the hypervisors which are supported.Still confused before the hypervisor upgrade?Refer the following document regarding general guidelines before the hypervisor upgrade.Hypervisor-upgrade-guidelines
vSphere 5.5U1 and NFS disconnects
Hello, It's made the news yesterday, but in case you missed it, there seems to be a bug within vSphere 5.5U1 that affects all NFS users. NetApp & VMware (at least, maybe Nutanix too?) are working on the subject. See the post below for more information: http://datacenterdude.com/vmware/nfs-disconnects-vmware-vsphere/ That may also explain the delay from Nutanix in the support of the 5.5U1? Did you guys catch this while working no the 5.5U1 support? Sylvain.
nutanix foundation upgrade failed
Dears, i have nutanix cluster 1350 and when i try to upgrade foundation of it i got below error : Could not find any node with foundation version < foundation-3.9-d31ad270 failed so please advise , despite it show attached photo [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/a9f53265-1638-4e4a-9c35-80ad03f0a470.png[/img]
Where can I find NX Physical Specs?
I’m in the sales process and the customer is asking me about the physical requirements of an NX appliance (particularly, the NX-1365-G6). Where can I find this information? Like power consumption, thermal dissipation, dimensions, etc... I know there are some [url=https://www.nutanix.com/products/hardware-platforms]here[/url], but they don’t list all the products there.
Xpress Configuration Scenario
Hi, I apologize in advance for the long post !!!! From the information I've reviewed, the Xpress Models (I'm looking at Lenovo's offering) will support a maximum of 4 nodes. In addition there is no Protection Domain. Let's pretend that I'm a cloud provider for multiple customers, and I host their (Domain/File/Print/Email/Sql) servers in my 4 node domain. I want to use an (Acronis/Storagecraft) in VM backup software. These products store their backup images to a NAS/Share. If I setup a second 3 node Xpress Model that is storage "heavy" running Acropolis File Services, as a NAS/Share destination for my backup images, is there any restriction that you can think of that would prevent/limit me from doing this ? Right now we use StorageCraft and save to a Windows Storage NAS that has RAID 10 and I'm concerned that writing to will not be able to handle the I/O? I'm guessing that the 3 node Xpress AFS will easily handle intensive I/O writes. On weekends, the Full backup runs a
AOS upgrade path 18.104.22.168 to 5.9.2/Latest ( 22.214.171.124)
WE are running on AOS version 126.96.36.199 and planning to upgrade it. When I checked in Upgrade path, the maximum version I can upgrade to is 5.6.2 I need to know, if I want to upgrade to the latest version which is 188.8.131.52, do I have to follow the path like [b]184.108.40.206 >> 5.6.2 >> 5.9.2 >> 220.127.116.11[/b] , basically a 3 step procedure OR is it that I can upgrade to 5.6.2 only. Please share your views.
Backup performance on NX-1050
I currently have 2 x NX-1450, both are running NOS 4.0.1 and I'm using Hyper-V. Everything is linked up to 10Gb and I'm using a physical veeam server outside of Nutanix to back up both clusters, he is linked up to 4Gb. We are currently suffering from a bad backup performance, let's say something around 30-40Mb/s processing rate for one VM that is on a node that isn't doing anything at all. If I perform the same tests on an NX-3360, I can easily get up to 160-180MB/s processing rate, so that kinda rules out my network/configuration. Is there anyone out there running NX-1050 with vmware or hyper-v and Veeam and that can share their configuration/processing rates?
Upgrade AHV on AWS Cloud instance
HI We use an AWS cloud instance as a remote data protection ‘site’. The production cluster has been successfully updated to AOS 18.104.22.168 (LTS) but this needed an AHV update to keep everything compatible.. Is is possible / desirable to upgrade the AWS cloud instance AHV ? IIRC it’s not supported to do OS upgrades (MIcrosoft OS anyway) on cloud infrastructure, it’s generally a migration to a new server. Is it possible to put a new AWS remote Nutanix instance in place and connect the backup data ??? Any advice on how to keep the whole Nutanix environment up to date is appreciated.
