Nutanix CE (latest) installation on Intel NUC Gen6 -- CVM issues

  • 20 December 2021

Tried googling but can’t find anything to support me.


Model: NUC7i5DNHE

2x SSD (500+250GB SSD)

1x _16_ gb Cruizer Fit USB


AHV installation works and I create 1 signle node cluster., After rebooting I get SSH/Ping acces to AHV and can loginw with root.



CVM does not answer to ping/wev.

Tried SSH / Ping from AHV but does not get an answer:


[root@NTNX-eXXXXX-A ~]# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable


I’ve tried re-installing multiple times but same issue.

Is the problem the 16Gb cruizer fit usb? It’s the bootable media.

CVM gets 500gb SSD disk

Data gets 250Gb disk


[root@NTNX-eXXXXX-A ~]# virsh list
 Id    Name                           State




Tried the logs from other posts but not able to get any outputs.


Anyone got a recommendation for me? Any commands to check CVM issues?

Only error i find in the logs is this:


2021-12-19 20:11:05,113Z ERROR svm_rescue:262 Unable to create CVM UUID Marker. Error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/sys/class/dmi/id/product_uuid'
2021-12-19 20:11:05,113Z ERROR svm_rescue:994 Unable to create CVM UUID marker.


Not sure if it got anything to do with it or not

Hi @Grand 


Have you checked in BIOS if VT-x and VT-d are both enabled?
