I backed up the disk files of the virtual machine to a non NFS environment through SFTP, and now I want to upload the files to CVM through SFTP. However, the upload speed of SFTP is too slow. A regular virtual machine disk file has at least 200GB, and uploading takes several hours. I tried using multithreading to split files and upload them in parallel, but merging these small files after uploading still requires the same upload time. Then I tried to create a 200GB empty file, but it still took a few hours for SFTP. May I ask if there is any way to solve this problem
Hello,we have UCS Domain with Fabric Interconnect “FI-6332-16UP” and 3 nodes “HXAF240C-M5SX” servers have three controllers “Lewisburg SSATA Controller [AHCI mode], Cisco 2.5 375GB Intel Optane NVMe Extreme Performance SSD, and Cisco 12G Modular SAS controller(max 26 drives)”we are trying to install Nutanix using the foundation and tried Creating Server Profiles using foundation and creating profile manually always stuck at the same point and getting “StandardError: This node is expected to have exactly 1 HBA with pci id 9005:028f. But phoenix could not find any such device”our servers meet Nutanix-Cisco supported HW “Third-Party Platforms ANY - Cisco UCS® Hardware Compatibility (nutanix.com)”followed Nutanix recommendation for UCS Firmware supported with foundation 5.4.2 and Cisco Firmware 4.2-3g. we tried the AOS AHV and tried using Customized ESXi always at the same point.followed this kb “Third-Party Platforms ANY - Determining Whether the Foundatin VM Includes the Latest Policy Fi
I have several instances of CE 2.0 for test running virtual under Proxmox. Today I got a message saying my license is expired and prompt a form that I filled out but my access was blocked. I didn’t know CE 2.0 has limited use of license. In reality I never read the license.Is this license renewable for free ? Sincerely,Ventura
I don’t know how to get Nutanix CE to work on my machine.I want to give it a try for my home lab, please help me! (Please see installer.log and installer_vm.log in the next posts) I tried couple of times and also picked the Recommended types for the disks, but still it fails.Installer: SanDisk USB 3.2 Gen 1 (128GB)CVM Boot: Samsung SSD 960 EVO M.2 2280 (1TB)CVM Boot: Samsung SATA III 2,5 tum SSD (1TB)Data: Samsung SATA III 2,5 tum SSD (1TB)Data: Intel SSD NVMe PCIe 3.0 x 4 HET MLC (800GB)Data: Intel SSD NVMe PCIe 3.0 x 4 HET MLC (800GB)Hypervisor: SanDisk USB 3.2 Gen 1 (128GB) CPU: Intel Xeon CPU E5-2648 v4 2.40ghz RAM: 256GB
I have newly installed HPE DX380 servers, total 3 NODEs with 10G/25G Dual port NIC ports (2 Pairs = Total 4 Ports).I have Mellanox Network switch which is configured with 1 to 12 port on 10 GB Network.After installing the AHV,AOS & creating the Cluster, when trying to create the VS, it is showing 3 Network Cards in 25G group & 1 in 10G. Therefore I am not able to create a BOND. My question is, How come only one NIC is showing 10G speed & rest of them with 25G. Logically if I have already configured my Network switch with 10G speed for all the required ports, In Prism also it should reflect as 10G even if that NIC is supported 10/25G speed.Does anyone have any solution for this. I am missing something? Can we change the NIC speed manually on each Node?Thanks in advance.
I have a brand new NUC alike (minisforum UM773 Lite) with an AMD Ryzen 7735HS, 32 GB RAM and 1 x 1TB nvme drive and 1 x 1TB SATA SSD drive. It also has an “unsupported” Intel i225v 2.5GB NIC on board.I’ve followed the instruction here to get the NIC to work, and I have confirmed that the card does indeed work using dmesg.When I restart the install with the ./ce_installer && screen -r command, the NIC successfully gets an IP and the installer gets further but on then fails when getting to this point.Does anyone have any ideas how to get past this point?
I am planning to make Nutanix PoC with the Community Edition. And if successful use Nutanix. The goal is to make a tree or four node cluster with local storage.And how would it be best to prepare the tree nodes. The have buildin Hardware Raid controller. (Cisco UCS servers). I could put in up to 8 disks. They can be in same size or in deferent sizes. I would probably be some 1-2 TB SSD disks. I can make one or more Raid disks. (Raid 1, 5, 10). Would would make sense in a performance and redundancy perspective.I have read the CE Getting started guide. Here there are mentioned:Storage Devices (Max 4 HDD/SSD) Cold Tier (500 GB or greater, maximum 18 TB (3x6 TB HDDs) Storage Devices, Hot Tier Flash (Single 200 GB SSD or Greater. Hypervisor Boot Device (32 GB pr. Node)Witch storage needs to be fast? And should I have my hardware raid make the disks ?.Would it make sense to build a raid 10 on eight equal sized disks and make logical drives fitting each of the above disks types?
The Problem===========We need to integrate the Nutanix cluster with SolarWinds to view the VMs - compatible /supported - data ( VM names, VM IPs,…) in the SolarWinds GUI. Get the basic VM management actions as per Nutanix document AOS ( 6.5) https://www.nutanix.com/partners/technology-alliances/solarwindsHost and Guest VM availability, fault and performance monitoring and alerting: * CPU/Memory/Network statistics * Storage statistics * Basic VM management actions supported Nutanix versions Troubleshooting==============• We have generated a new SSL.• We have tried to add the cluster using the Prism Central (PC) , could not login.Current status===============1) The Nutanix Prism Element (PE) can be seen under the SolarWindsEnvironment================Single cluster Single PCOther links we have checked ==================SolarWindshttps://support.solarwinds.com/SuccessCenter/s/global-search/%40uri?language=en_US#q=Nutanix&t=All&sort=relevancy
Hello I am trying to install the CE of Nutanix but after passing all pre-installation and when it is starting to install the OS i am getting same issue below:fatal could not find nic with valid mac addressand installation is terminated.hardware used: Flex System x240 Compute nodeNetwork adapter: Flex System CN4052S 2-port 10Gb Virtual Fabric Adapter Do i need to import additional drivers for this network adapter? have you ever had the same issue?
Hi, I am still new to nutanix and i have a few question on the foundationI have 2 Dell XC740xd 12 servers and install with server 2019 Datacenter core as hypervisor.Both Server has a SVM in it. is SVM the same CVM? Isn’t CVM the Prism Central? If not Prism Central means i had to download, import and setup the VM for Prism central into the nodes? does each SVM has to be from different domain? Can i join both server SVM to the Same domain even though they can’t be setup as cluster in nutanix? Can i use failover cluster to join both nodes as cluster and reflect it on Nutanix Prism Element or Central? On Foundation number 2 Nodes the Nodes A, B, C, D, am i able to join it as cluster if i setup both node as A node?
Hello guys, if I use Metro Availability as the way to sync my data between two sites. if the primary site gets down do I have to manually enable unplanned failover or its directly enabled when the other one gets down. Also, what about the other syncing methods, are they the same. Thanks
Hi I have setup the nutanix AOS 188.8.131.52 with Hyper V hypervisor server 2016 on 2 nodes with foundation.I have some question that I am still unable to figure out.I am able to console in the SVM in both nodes via SSH, but I am unable to access the Prism on Web Browser til I create the cluster in SVM. Is this correct?After accessing the Prism, most of the prism element function like VM, Storage and etc apart from health was available. Is this due to nutanix main role in Hyper V was limited as to only manage to see dashboard?I try to add the second node to the first node that has created the cluster in Prism, but was unable. Does it mean I can only do VM creation, modification, deletion etc and join cluster via the Server failover over cluster in Hyper V?Is there a guide for Nutanix with Hyper V from setup to managing, as I have read the AAPM which doesn’t seems to apply on this.
As Nutanix recommended connectivity is 10G but due to some ports availability issue we initially configured Nutanix cluster with 1G but now we are planning to change our Nutanix environment uplink to 10G, any advise will there be any impact or can you share the procedure to change uplinks to 10G.
I have a situation where my production cluster is a lease with $1 buyout from a service provider who is license the cluster and the term is up this fall. We have AOS and Frame license as a service and provided by the them. In planning to take over ownership, I am needing to continue the license on this cluster and the Frame license. I am having a hard time finding instructions from any of the current Nutanix Sales team because the current hardware is still under the leasing contract and it seems like we cannot get a quote/plan to apply a new license on this cluster. We are always directed to purchase a new cluster with new licensing. We are force to look a new cluster so our team is now open to new technology outside Nutanix. The easy answer seems to elude. Does anyone have any direction contact or advise to try to get the inventory ownership transferred and get new license applied without effecting Frames on the AHV cluster? I cannot I have emails going back since last year try
I configured domain protections between my primary and secondary site.domain protections are configured by VMs which means that I have as many domain protections as VMs.After the first replications, I would like to make sure that the size of my VM on the primary site is identical on the secondary site but I find that this is not the case.I don't know if I'm doing a good interpretation.Attached is the capture of my VM on the primary site before replication and on the secondary after replication.Please help me with your explanations.
