I’m trying to figure out why We are unable to login in to Prism central as below message appear when trying to login:


as it show in the dev tools ( Failed to load resource ) 


I have checked the apache and its not working but not sure if the issue has anything to do with httpd

below is the status of httpd on the PCVM

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status httpd.service
● httpd.service
   Loaded: masked (/dev/null; bad)
   Active: inactive (dead)
nutanix@NTNX-A-PCVM:~$ sudo service httpd start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start httpd.service
Failed to start httpd.service: Unit is masked.


after that checked if a service does not start or there is any FATAL logs

for i in `svmips`; do echo "CVM: $i"; ssh $i "ls -ltr /home/nutanix/data/logs/*.FATAL"; done




its look there is many services having problme


below is the output of lazan.FATAL:

Just want to update on this: Based on the command below two PCVM are in Forwarding. Any suggestions on how to solve this problem?

nutanix@NTNX-10-0-22-199-A-PCVM:~$ nodetool -h 0 ring

Address Status State Load Owns Token
X.X.X.199 Up Normal 340.3 GB 33.33%
X.X.X.197 Up Forwarding 38.62 GB 33.33%
X.X.X.198 Up Forwarding 407.12 GB 33.33%

Do you mean Prism element (i.e. the nodes themselves) or Prism Central (a separate deployment)?


What output do you get from the cluster status command? It looks like you have two CVMs down.

Hello @SteveCoops

No I mean Prism Central ( a separate deployment )

I have three PCVM two of them as shown are in (  Forwarding ) state  

Below is the output:

nutanix@NTNX-198-A-PCVM:~$ cluster status | grep -v UP
2022-05-13 10:24:35,114Z INFO MainThread cluster is attempting to connect to Zookeeper

2022-05-13 10:24:35,120Z INFO MainThread cluster:2918 Executing action status on SVMs te of the cluster: start

        CVM: X.X.X.197 Up, ZeusLeader

        CVM: X.X.X.198 Up

        CVM: X.X.X.199 Up
                             Epsilon DOWN       []

Epsilon is only down on the 199 CVM I do not think it has to do anything with the issues here!
