I know this can be done with the NX hardware using the IPMITOOL utility pre-installed, but we’re starting to use HPE hardware and I wondered if anyone knew how to change the iLo administrator login password via cmdlet? We’ve scripted this for NX line and looking to do the same with HPE’s as a part of our deployment scripting.
I have an old cluster of 4 NX-8035 nodes running AHV used for testing purposes. The LCM update is failing with sata_dom_wearout_check. Is there anyway to skip that check when running LCM updates? This is old hardware and I wont be replacing any parts, just want to get updates to run.
We have received a new (Model: NX-TDT-2NL3-G7) 2 set of hardware with ESXI installed and we would like to add into new cluster, hence in the process of preparing foundation, we realized that IPMI IP address is not accessible, no networking issues and it may because CVM is not installed and configured properly and we finding difficulties to prepare these 2 hosts for separate VMware Horizon VDI Cluster. It would be great is any technician can assist us over the online session or step by step instructions would be also helpful.We do have an existing Nutanix Cluster with 7 Hosts, where Existing Nutanix Cluster : AOS version 5.20.3NCC: 4.4.0Foundation: 4.1.1Installed ESXi Host Version : VMware ESXi 6.7.0 build-14320388Please share step by step or instructions and documents how to add the Hosts a and configure.
Hello!Are about to set up Infoblox (vNIOS) as a HA pair.An Infoblox article says:“When you deploy a vNIOS HA pair, ensure that the port connection allows for more than one MAC address per vNIC. For example, if you deploy a vNIOS HA pair in VMware vSphere, the port-profile to which the vNIOS HA and LAN ports connect should allow for more than one MAC address per vNIC. You can do this by changing the security settings of the port-group to accept "MAC address changes" and "Forged transmits," as illustrated in the following figure.” What about Nutanix AHV regarding the above ?
Hi There,So I made a stupid mistake and removed 2 x eth interfaces from all 3 nodes within the only virtual switch on my cluster. This was within Prism Element. I can still access AHV via IPMI, can no longer access Prism Element. Is there a way to add the eth interfaces back onto the virtual switch via AHV/AOS through the cmdlets?Cheers in advance.Adam
Hello all, It seems that I am having issues with one of my ESXI hosts in my Nutanix. Nutanix G8ESXI 6.7 vSphere 6.7 This is a new set up, so not entirely devastated. Now the reason I believe it became disconnected is because in vSphere I see Network Adapter 1 VM Network (Disconnected). However the other 2 CVM’s are working just fine and are connected. in Prism when I click on the node I do see the host details, but nothing like the name I originally gave it, under the hardware tab and Host NIC’s there's nothing.Under Prism settings > Configure CVM I see 2 of the 3 and of course the one missing is the one I'm having issues with. Now I am able to see open the CVM VM in vSphere and Prism, but here's the other issue. When I set these up I used a password manager and gave all 3 CVM’s the same password, why I bring this up is because the other 2 CVM’s take the password and username, but the bad CVM doesn't. Even the default password for the G8 models doesn't work. So in other words I cann
Hello dear Nutanix community,A client of my company has purchased 3 HX Lenovo nodes and 2 ToR Cisco switches, each node was equipped with only 2 ports 10GbE (the LOM ones). However, with only 2 ports, I don’t know how to setup the cluster in a way that there is a redundancy. The current rack looks like this without any cabling yet: The IPMI port will go to a Management Switch, so there’s no issue there. But so far, I am confused as to how setup the cabling for the two interfaces; Should eth0 go to a port on SW1 and eth1 go to a port on SW2 for each of the 3 servers? or should both eth0 and eth1 go to the same switch? If I understood correctly the AHV Networking articles in Nutanix, eth0 and eth1 will form a logical bond (br0-up) inside the br0 bridge. And I’m guessing since we only have 2 uplinks per nodes (I’m going for the first scenario):> eth0 will go to SW1Port1 (for example), SW1Port1 will be configured as a Trunk port, for which the CVM/AHV VLAN and User VMs VLANs will be de

Is it possible to enable RDMA nic manually in the CVM after manually passthrough the Mellanox network card to CVM in ESXi?It is not enable RDMA during foundation and the cluster is created.After passthrough the NICs to CVM in ESXi, I checked that the NICs are already in the lspci result but can not enable RDMA in Prism.So if it is not possible, that means if the cluster is created without RDMA enabled. there is no way to re-enable RDMA except re-foundation the cluster?
I have just changed disk 0 and disk 1 which were SSD SATA 480gb and now are SSD SAS 1.92tb - Prism still identifies them as SSD-SATA - Why? or have a missed something?Also how do I know if they are in a RAID config or whether the system has just picked them up as single disks?The new drives should run like hot snot, how do I check that they are running faster than the old SATA drives - still have 2 hosts with old drives , I plan to complete the change over tomorrow. Or will I only see speed increase when all hosts are complete?
Has anyone ever attempted a Host book disk repair and encountered this issue before? All cables and SFPs are plugged in as if it were still in production. Have not yet attempted to rebuild via foundation as these were the steps provided by Nutanix support: https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Hypervisor-Boot-Drive-Replacement-Platform-v510-Multinode-G3G4G5:Hypervisor-Boot-Drive-Replacement-Platform-v510-Multinode-G3G4G5 Steps Taken: Downloaded and burnt phoenix.iso to USB Booted USB into Phoenix Kicked off Repair Host boot Disk and uploaded whitelisted ESXi image Encountered error I have a case open with support and have escalated and figured that while i’m waiting I could ask the community. Will provide a response here once we figure out the issue. Cheers All! (Edit: I posted this in the CE forum by accident)
So - I have been trying to get some sort of automation of my Ubuntu VM creation in Prism, either by setting up a template machine that I would later modify using cloud-init custom scripts, or even better using a custom cloud-init script at creation to run through the “Ubuntu autoinstall” I have tried a few times now to install an Ubuntu server by clicking my way through the GUI and then using the resulting .yml file to try and install a VM from scratch… Using “clone” from a template I can use a custom script to change hostname and so forth, but still having some problems changing the network settings (saying they are disabled by system.cfg). I guess I will be able to figure that part out eventually, but my main goal is to be able to register a new machine in Netbox, and from the info I have entered there automatically create a cloud-init fileand use that to trigger VM creation in Nutanix… When I try to create a new VM - mounted with the Ubuntu 20.04.4 installer ISO and a 100GB disk -

Hi,I’m trying to update a Nutanix env, from Prism Element. Using the web, in LCM, I see version 5.20.2 being in there, but when trying to upgrade to 5.20.3, I get the following error:Update of nutanix.nos failed on 192.168.0.2 (environment cvm) at stage 1 with error: [Failed to perform AOS upgrade with error [Preupgrade task [57c7e9a1-ebc9-495d-a848-2ead17251730] failed/aborted with message Version 5.20.3 is same as the current version 5.20.3]]LCM is at 126.96.36.199. NCC check done previously, nothing to report. Here the LCM dashboard. Any ideas on how to resolve this? Thanks a lot in advance. BTQ: I’m working within a lab environment.
Hi all, I’m trying to create additional admins accounts with LDAP authentication on Nutanix. I’ve got clusters up and running, got LDAP working, and the generic RBAC ‘VM admin/VM read only’ etc accounts (that I’m creating) are all good. But I thought Nutanix had added the ability to create a full cluster admin with AD authentication rather than creating local ones on something like prism central now? Or am I mistaken? (If someone has a way of doing this, it would be much appreciated). Kind Regards,SiW
Looking for anyone that has been successful with installing windows 11 on Nutanix AHV?I have tried, in my VM creation i have selected UEFI and Secure Boot. What I can’t seem to get to is how to enable TPM? When VM boots there is no way to get into bios to enable TPM. So how do you do that?Thanks
Morning,We have a 5 node cluster using the Lenovo HX series hardware (ThinkAgile HX3521-G).We changed our IMPI range after the installation had completed to an out of band IP range that all our IPMI NICs sit on. I made the change in BIOS and then restarted the genesis services on each node via the node CVM.The Genesis restart appeared to be successful.However when I look at the nodes in the hardware section of Prism element the IPMI address is showing up as a a generic self assigned 169.254.x.x address.What would be the best way to address this?Im new to Nutanix so forgive me if I have missed something super obvious...thanks Graham
