Unable to start CVM on new install 3/4 nodes/


Trying to setup a four node Nutanix cluster. All nodes are identical, including the BIOS settings. Three nodes will not start the CVM, seemingly due to not being able to pass the pcie SSD to the VM. Any thoughts on why this would be?

virsh start NTNX-187dcf47-A-CVM
error: Failed to start domain NTNX-187dcf47-A-CVM

Might be an issue with IOMMU???

Intel VT-t was disabled in a buried BIOS menu on the nodes that didn’t work.
