Folks,

Anyone facing issue when Reimaging NX 3460 G5 ?
This box is brand new
Using Foundation applet all nodes are discoverable
Takes an hour to deploy AHV 20160601.20 and AOS 4.7.1 although the process running smooth
Next is using Standalone Foundation 3.6 to Reimage to ESXi 6
All nodes are discoverable but process failed at 26 %
Switch to Bare Metal method with no luck also
Next is upgrading BMC to 3.35 following Nutanix procedure for upgrading BMC
All BMC successfully upgrade to 3.35
Proceed with both Foundation aplet and Standalone Foundation takes more than an hour and the Reimaging failed with ESXi deployed but not the CVM also no luck when I proceed with Phoenix method
ESXi hostname starengely appear as captured

Anyone facing this issue and manage to resolve it ?

Sounds familiar as a network port config issue. When you are doing foundation, are you using a flat switch that has no vlan tagging? If not, I would place a bet that you are running into a vlan issue. Look at the node logs to see if you are timing out on the 'Waiting for Phoenix' step. Best way to fix would be to put a native vlan tag on the port just for imaging or make it access port for imaging then change back to trunk. Better yet, use a flat switch, set your vlan tags and the hook it up to the production switch.

I'm using flat switch with only default vlan exist. Only my workstation and NX box connected. It stuck when installing CVM after files extraction. I also change AOS file from 4.7.1 to 5.0. Same switch and workstation are works when reimaging other box
