Protection Domain Warnings
I have three protection domains, all containing VM's. All three have schedules set and I can see that local snapshots are being made. I have restored machines with no issues. All seems well, but I am getting "Backup Schedule" health warnings on all three PD's. [b][i]Causes of failure[/i][/b][i]No backup schedule exists for protection domain protecting some entities.[/i] [i]Backup schedule exists for protection domain not protecting any entity.[/i] Neither of the above suggestions is true. I can't seem to get this one to resolve. Is this a bug or is there something here I am missing?
NX-6260 ( NX-6060 - Part 422-NX-6260 ) Power Specifications
Hello - Can someone reply with the complete power specifications for the Nutanix NX-6260 ( NX-6060 )? I know these have dual power supplies. Please provide the following at minimum: 1.) Voltage of each power supply - I think these are 208V Single Phase 2.) Amps per power supply 3.) Watts per powerr supply 4.) Power Cable Ends - Please confirm - I think these are C13/C14 for each power supply. We do not yet have the boxes so I need to prepare for the power requirements of these devices. I am looking at two of the Tripp-Lite PDU Basic 208V/240V 30A C13 10 Outlet L6-30P Horizontal 1U - MFG Part #: PDUH30HV Also wondering what others are using. Thank You. Sam

IPMI Ports Show "No Connect" In BIOS
Hello, A few of the IPMI ports on a new installation (3K and 6K series) show "no connect" in the BIOS. The ones that are working show "Dedicated LAN." Our networking folks have verified the ports as access ports, and are active with the correct VLAN ID configured. We will be swapping the ports on the switch between the working/non-working IPMI ports to confirm if the issue is on the switch or node side. Could there be some BIOS settings we may have missed? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

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?

Cluster SSL Certificate
Team, I would like to install SSL Certificate for my cluster. I have 3 nodes in it and I am wondering how many certificates should I request. 1 single certificate for the entire cluster (The CSR will be generated using the Leader, but what is going to happen if the leader changes) or should I request 3 certificates (one for each cvm) ? Many thanks in advance, Regards, Thibaut
CVM network latency on new chips
Have a customer that we just installed new 6035 nodes using the Haswell chip. Found that they had an issue where CVM network latency checks would periodically fail. Inspecting the log with support showed occasional 70ms+ spikes both for CVM-to-CVM and CVM-to-gateway settings. This is a vSphere 5.5 U2 cluster, so we set the power settings for high-performance instead of balanced (default by foundation) and the latency issue went away. We're guessing there is some new ACPI tweaks required by VMware for ESXi. After configuring high performance, the latency between CVMs went from .2 to .3 millisecond average (typical) to more in the .07 - .09 range, and so far we're no longer observing any big spikes.
Hi, There is a fun bug with version 18.104.22.168 ...

Install Splunk on Nutanix
Hi Everyone, I've planed to deploy Spunk on Nutanix on my Company. But i'm newbie in Nutanix, so I have some question about this: 1. Nutanix have hypervisor which I can use is ESXi, HyperV,KVM... so in my case, I will use Esxi and rehat to install Splunk. it's mean I have install Splunk on Redhat which is running on ESXi, is it right? Can i install Redhat directly to Nutanix server (1 node have 4 server?) 2. About the Cluster, Which is control the cluster on VM Host? Vmware vCenter or Nutanix Prism Central? 3. Nutanix have an OS is VM Controller? is it install on Vmware machine or is it a hypervisor? Thanks for all reply to make my clear this stuff.
Prism UI - time zone and timestamps shown on events
So the hosts themselves have been changed accordingly for the timezone the customer wants, but was wondering, for Prism to show the correct timestamps on stuff being done, would this come from the CVM time zone or where is the setting for the switching PRISM to use the customer specified timezone for timestamps?
