I have tried multiple times to install the Nutanix community edition and use ESXi 7.0U1 as the hypervisor. The install is nested inside of a VM running on a host machine running ESXi 7.0U1. The install appears to complete correctly to a point. The installation states that the installation was completed successfully and the system needs to reboot. ESXi starts to load and complete additional configuration. The ESXi screen eventually will show FAILED-INSTALL as the host name. After I login to the ESXi web administrator portal I notice a few things are wrong.
- The CVM virtual machine is not present
- I notice three error messages in the recent tasks window. The status message indicates a failed Deselect Vnic For Nic Type
- There is also an error message stating a failed Disable ruleset
These error messages do not give any further information indicating what happened. I have tried ESXi 7.0 and ESXi 6.7. Each time I receive the same error messages. I can see Nutanix specific port groups and a virtual switch called vSwitchNutanix that were created during the automated config. I also notice that the virtual switch called vSwitchNutanix does not have any uplinks assigned to it. I really want to try out the Nutanix CE with ESXi as the hypervisor, but keep running into these issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
