Hi all, This morning I tried to log in to Prism only to find it was unavailable. I tracked down which node had the IP of prism (logged into all nodes - there must be an easier way!) but I didn't know what to do to restart it. Anyway, I decided to go for breakfast and it was back up again when I returned, but was down for at least 10 minutes. Can I restart it, should it move to another node? Regards, Nick

BMC firmware version is outdated - how to update the BMC firmware?
Hi all, Our nutanix has been running for a little bit more than 2 years now. Due to changes in our work environment (and the fact that our 3050 nodes started on NOS 3.5) we decided to use the opportunity to perform a field install, and do the upgrade to nos 4.5. We were getting the BMC error for a little while (since we were on nos 4.x). The reimage proces went perfectly but, and I was sure that during the reimage the BMC firmware should have been update, this was not the case. BMC firmware is still version 1.87. NCC is giving us warnings about that. I searched the site, but I can't find the BMC firmware files. Do I need to go get them from the supermicro site (not fond if doing things that way), or is there a nutanix link to the most recent BMC firmware? Some pointers in the right direction would be appreciated Thank you very much kind regards Marino

Slow logon to Prism interface after upgrade to 184.108.40.206
Hi, We have recently upgraded our Nutanix cluster from 4.0.3 to 220.127.116.11 and are noticing slower logons to the Prism interface. Before the upgrade this was almost instant while now it might take up to 10 seconds. Has anyone had the same experience?

is there a way to Remove scsi controller beyond what is available in prism.
I can remove the controller using 'virsh edit' or through virt-manager connected to the host, but those changes do not persist, and Acropolis adds the scsi controller back in when the VM is started.Is there any supported way to do edit VM properties beyond what is exposed in Prism and to have the changes persist?
Creating a private key/public certificate pair using Microsoft CA for connection to Azure
Hi, The Web Console Guide gives directions for using OpenSSL for creating the private key/public certificate necessary to connect a remote Azure site for Data Protection, but has no instructions for using a Microsoft CA. Can anyone provide this information? Cheers, Nick
How do you stop a task that is running (such as a remote site creation).
Hi, Can anyone help me find a way to stop the creation of a remote site. I was told it would take around 10-15 minutes, but so far after 3 hours it is still running at 0%! There is probably some configuration issues on the network, so I would like to fix that up first and try again. For the life of me, however, I cannot find how to stop the task. Regards, Nick
vSphere ESXi Update 3a
Hi, We have a cluster of Dell XC730xd-12 and would like to update them to ESXi U3a (to match the rest of our vSphere environment). I know Dell don't have a customised ESXi U3a iso yet, so is there any advice on how to do the upgrade such as any specific extra drivers required in the Update Manager baseline or will I be able to use the json and the vanilla VMware zip and use one-click cluster upgrade? Regards, Nick

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
Acropolis Hypervisor Best Practices Guide : HOW TO CREATE VLAN ON A NEW BRIDGE
Hi all, I read the acropolis administration guide and the Acropolis hypervisor Best Practices guide. thanks lot i would it and i have it. It's explain how to create bridge, bond, separe 10Gb interface and 1G interface. But nothing for create a network vlan (tagin or native) on the NEW bridge.

The number of hosts you can add to a cluster
Hi all, Does anyone tell me the number of hosts you can add to a cluster when you are using acropolis hypervisor. I understand that the number of hosts you can add to a cluster depends on the hypervisor you use. For example, if it were configured with ESXi 6.0, the number of hosts you can add would be 64 hosts. I appreciate if anyone tell me the limitations for acropolis hypervisor if there is any. Thank you

Data Resiliency Status shows error
Hello All, For one of the customers, I did a fresh install and on that one, when I check the data resiliency status, it shows me that for Extend Group, it is 0. The explanation is as follows: "Based on placement of extend group replicas the cluster can tolerate a maximum of 0 node failure." Do you know what this can be about? There is no error or warning on the cluster. Cheers..
