Hi,

Does anyone have a step-by-step guide on creating a Windows cluster on ESX on Nutanix? I've seen various examples online of using ISCI, SMB etc file shares but I'm not entirely sure on what to do.

I've got the cluster as far as the file share witness working but how do I then configure the disks that make up the cluster resources?

I will eventually be clustering SQL 2012 on this.

Cheers,
Steve

Hi 

Which version of Acropolis (AOS) will you be running? The setup will use iSCSI presented directly to the VM, but will vary if it's 4.7 or higher. I'd recommend using 4.7. Both pre and post 4.7 methods are outlined here: https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/solutions/details?targetId=BP-2049_Acropolis_Block_Services:BP-2049_Acropolis_Block_Services

Thanks,
Mike

Thank you - looks like I have a bit of reading to do! We're on 4.6.2 at the moment.
