Nutanix Cluster is comprised of several critical software and hardware components. All communication happens on a IP network. 

  1. CVM - Controller Virtual Machine (AOS)
  2. Hypervisor - (AHV | ESXi | Hyper-V | XEN)
  3. IPMI - (Out of band management for the hosts)

Each CVM communicates with its respective Hypervisor Host on a private IP network. Hosts and CVMs must be on the same subnet.

Before proceeding with any network related changes, on the CVM or Hypervisor hosts, it is recommended to perform a cluster health check. Following Nutanix KB outlines the steps to ensure your Nutanix Cluster is in a healthy and consistent state:
