I have setup Nutanix CE in a lab environment but I cannot get to the Prism page when browsing to the CVM IP address. I'm getting the message:
Prism services have not started yet. Please try again later.
Although I have run cluster status and the Prism service is up and running:
It is a single node setup on VMWare. I can ping the CVM IP and SSH onto the CVM.
Any assistance would be gratefully received!

Hi I had the same issue and thought I would share my findings.
I’m running the CE on a laptop (lenovo t490s 32GB) using windows 10 as the OS and using VMware Workstation.
After a successful installation (I assigned 16GB to the cluster) I noticed the same behavior the OP mentioned, Prism services running but error when going to the CVM IP on my browser.
I checked the /home/nutanix/data/logs/prism.out log to see what additional information I could find about the service and found the following:
So the tomcat webserver seems to have been restarting, I then went over to check the catalina.out logs, and found this:
So it seems that my CVM was somehow running out of memory and thus the prism service was not correctly working.
Coincidentally I was running out of battery during the troubleshooting and decided to plug my laptop into a power source. Prism then started working!
After some testing, it seems that the power settings of my OS were hindering the usage of the CPU and/or RAM while running on battery only. So the solution for me was to plug in my laptop to a power source.
I hope this helps some one in the future :)
