MetisMetis ToolMetis allows you to qualify and integrate your hardware with Nutanix software.Nutanix delivers Metis as an .ova or QCOW2 file depending on the hypervisor. Deploy it on a separate utility node or on a laptop using VirtualBox.Note: If you host Metis on a laptop, make sure that the laptop stays running and connected throughout the entire process.After using Metis, submit the results to the Nutanix Elevate portal. Nutanix uses the results to assess whether the individual hardware components or the entire platform configurations meet the standards to support Nutanix software.Infrastructure Requirements Foundation VM X-Ray VM DHCP server Elevate PortalDetails of the Nutanix Elevate portal.Nutanix maintains a web portal called the Elevate portal as a central location for FleX information, which includes Metis.After you run tests on your component or platform using Metis, you can upload the results to the Elevate portal.When you create a qualification ticket in the Elevate p
OverviewFleX Driver Development KitDriver development overview.About this taskNutanix provides the FleX Driver Development Kit (DDK) to help developers build, inject, qualify, and distribute new drivers.Use the DDK to build a Linux kernel with one or more loadable kernel modules. The DDK builds a Linux kernel tar file that you can use as an input for Metis.In general, the driver development procedure is as follows:Procedure Prepare the compile environment. Prepare the source code to compile. The source can be an updated kernel source tree or one or more out-of-tree kernel module. Compile the kernel and modules to create the kernel tar file with the driver. Use the new kernel tar file as an input for Metis. Use Metis to qualify the new kernel and driver. Submit the driver source code (source rpm), qualification results, the procedure for building the driver, and release notes though your qualification ticket on the Elevate portal.

The instructions for shutting down a cluster are to use “sudo shutdown -P now” on the CVM’s in the cluster to shut each one down, but the command only works on the first CVM. The command errors out the rest of the CVMs because they can’t reach the first CVM that was shut down. Am I missing something?

I have a few systems to rebuild from baremetal. They are all secure boot enabled and to disable this I have to go onsite to change a jumper.Foundation dosen’t seem to be working which I am assuming the phoenix boot just gets skipped as its not uefi enabled. Is there a version or a process I can use to bare metal build these systems. I can easily install esxi manually if required.Just trying to avoid a trip into a covid zone to change a jumper if i can avoid it.

Hi All, Would like to check is there any docs available which related to Nutanix storage container design and best practices? Assuming i have web, apps and db vm running inside AHV. Isn’t recommended to create new dedicated storage container for each VM or VMs group based on web, apps and db instead of using default storage container? Example:Web storage container Apps storage containerDB storage container Any down side having multiple storage container? John
