Dear Community,I have a old NX-1050 still running (lab) and on one of the node, is having issues, the SATADOM boot drive seems faulty. Is there anyone out there who can provide me (donation or I can buy it!) a SATADOM model Innodisk InnoLite SATADOM D150QV-L 64GB Maybe a old cluster decommissioned laying out there ...It will be much appreciated ….Fred.
I configured four Nutanix 3460-G7 nodes, and when they were installed, I tried to log in using the given link (one of the cvm), but since the new nutanix default password was changed to the IPMI serial, I had to try four times before it locked me out. and my pc was detached from the switch for some reason, which I reconnected, but now I couldn't access the prior cvm ip using the gui. Need help guys
NUTANIX documents on upgrading Microsoft OS from 2012 R2 to 2016 reference the need for both the OS ISO file and also the “metadata upgrade JSON file.” Where do I locate the JSON file? It says the Nutanix support portal but I’m not able to access it there. It also mentions the “Hyper-V ISO file” but it’s unclear what that is referencing? If it is referring to the Server 2016 ISO file there doesn’t appear to be any file like this. Upgrade using ISOs. The Prism web console supports 1-click upgrade (Upgrade Software dialog box) of Hyper-V 2016 or 2019 by using metadata upgrade JSON file. This file is available in the Nutanix Support portal Hypervisor Details page and the Microsoft Hyper-V ISO file.Anyone able to point me to where to get this file so I can perform this needed upgrade?
I have pulled some new nodes into an existing cluster that utilizes LACP/LAG on the current nodes. The default configuration on the new nodes is Active/Backup. We also have new ToR switches that are not configured in a LAG. Are these the correct steps the configure Active/Active? The new nodes are only participating in the metadata ring - not hosting any VMs:To modify networking on the new nodes:Change the node to LACP enabled (ACTIVE/ACTIVE) using vs0 in the GUI – select only that ONE node to update the config on!! Put node into Maintenance Mode Login to CVM acli host.list acli host.enter_maintenance_mode host-IP-address DO I NEED TO PUT THE CVM IN MAINT MODE AS WELL?? Make changes on ToR switch – enable the 2 ports for LAG for that node ONLY Test networking Remove from Maintenance mode acli host.exit_maintenance_mode host-ip Verify resiliency returns to OK Move onto the next nodeI would love some feedback on if this is the correct order.
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?

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
By default, Life Cycle Manager (LCM) automatically fetches updates from a pre-configured URL. If LCM fails to access the configured URL to fetch updates, you can configure the LCM to fetch updates locally to upgrade Calm and Epsilon. Perform the following procedure to upgrade Calm and Epsilon at a dark site.Ensure that the LCM version is 2.3 or above.Procedure Set up a local web server that is reachable to your Calm VMs.You will use this server to host the LCM repository. Use the following steps to set up your LCM repository: From a device that has public Internet access, go to the Nutanix portal and select Downloads > Calm. Next to the LCM Dark Site Calm on ESX Bundle entry, click Download to download the latest LCM framework tar file, lcm_dark_site_bundle_version.tgz. Transfer the framework tar file to your local web server. Extract the framework tar file into the release directory.The following files are extracted into the release directory. master_manif
Calm on ESXi 3 Tier (Calm VM) is a standalone VM that you can deploy on ESXi hypervisors and leverage calm functionality without the Nutanix infrastructure.You can deploy Calm using the image available on the Nutanix Support Portal - Downloads page and start managing your applications across a variety of cloud platforms. This eliminates the need for buying Nutanix infrastructure to use Calm. Supported ESXi versions: 6.0.0 and 6.7 (vCenter version 6.7) Scale-out of Calm VM is not supported. Calm Version is 184.108.40.206. Policy engine enablement is not supported There are two available options. Deploying Calm using vSphere web-client Deploying Calm using vSphere cli. 1. Deploying Calm using vSphere web-client: Log on to the vSphere web client. Click the cluster on which you want to deploy the Calm VM. 3. Click Actions > Deploy OVF Template.The Deploy OVF Template window appears.4. In the Deploy OVF Template window, do the following. Click the Local File option to browse and uplo
Hello everybody,I was unsuccessful to boot from a SATA CDROM in an AHV VM on different Nutanix-cluster with the same AOS 5.15.4 LTS version.Allthough I explicitly selected to boot from the SATA CDROM, the VM says ‘Could not read from cdrom (Code xxx) and instantly jumps into 2048 game (what the heck).As soon as I switch to an IDE CDROM, the system boots properly.Is this a bug in AOS 5.15.4 LTS ?ThanksDidi7

I’ve been trying to download the latest version of Prism Central through Prism and consistently fails. I then downloaded the binary and metadata file but they also continue to fail to upload through Prism after various progress. I checked that there’s at least 10GB of free space in the /home directory - are there any logs that I can look at to troubleshoot further?
It can sometimes be confusing as to which network port(s) a Nutanix product or service uses. Also, this information can often be helpful when configuring network security or firewall appliances. For the various Nutanix products and services, a handy list of ports, services, their respective protocols, and a simple description of each can be found in the Port Reference documentation of the Portal. This list is conveniently divided into sections corresponding to each Nutanix product or service. Also, specifically regarding the configuration of network firewalls, a recommendation regarding the specific ports configuration can be found within the Recommendation on Firewall Ports Config knowledge base article.
