Has anyone ever attempted a Host book disk repair and encountered this issue before?

 

 

All cables and SFPs are plugged in as if it were still in production. Have not yet attempted to rebuild via foundation as these were the steps provided by Nutanix support:  https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Hypervisor-Boot-Drive-Replacement-Platform-v510-Multinode-G3G4G5:Hypervisor-Boot-Drive-Replacement-Platform-v510-Multinode-G3G4G5

 

Steps Taken:

  • Downloaded and burnt phoenix.iso to USB
  • Booted USB into Phoenix
  • Kicked off Repair Host boot Disk and uploaded whitelisted ESXi image
  • Encountered error

I have a case open with support and have escalated and figured that while i’m waiting I could ask the community. Will provide a response here once we figure out the issue.


Cheers All!

Just an update on the resolution.  Nutanix support was able to work around this by manually installing ESXi then Phoenix.  We suspect that the original problem was due to our network requiring a vLAN to be configured but the Host Repair wizard doesn’t allow for a vLAN to be defined hence the manual install route.

Got exactly the same issue. 

 

I was able to set the ip address of CVM… And restart the repair host boot device. But I’ve lost the SATADOM image which was successfully done at the first step. 

 

Actually Nutanix have no way to push back the SATADOM image saved back to the newly inserted SATADOM. 

 

So reimage process again and again and again … and again…. on my +600 nodes … Waste of a time and money.

 

They need to improved that steep so badly.
