Dears:I checked the “Nutanix Disaster Recovery Guide” and found from AOS 6.6, CG replication was supported on async replication, but not on nearsync or sync replication. Any ideas about CG when support near sync replication?The reason why I will have this question is we want to use CG nearsync replication to protect SQL server cluster. (Our RPO is about 10-15 mins), so I am worried about during planned failover or unplanned failover, the SQL server cluster could not start normally. Thank you very much!
Dears: Currently, we have 3 node cluster in PRD site. Now we plan to build the DR ability to build a multiple node cluster in DR site. We have one PC instance in PRD site now. My question is: In order to use protection policy to replicate PRD data to DR site(We plan to use nearSync), do we need to create a new PC instance in DR site?It seems one PC could manage multiple PEs, so one PC instance is enough. But what’s the function for DR site PC? Is it a mechanism to sync data from PRD PC to DR PC?
Hi All,We are using a backup tool on some Nutanix clusters and after some testing, it turns out backup does not work very well. So I consider alternatives and explore the full backup capacities with the protection domains. Is it possible to do granular backup (restore file), can we run pre/post scripts?Also Can we backup non-Nutanix clusters (VMware) with PD?Thanks in advance for your answersRegards,
Hello Community,I want to configure replication and failover plans between 2 separate Nutanix clusters, both running ESXi hypervisor.I do have Vmware SRM licenses and I am aware of these 2 possibilities :1. Replicate VMs using Nutanix Protection Domains (either with Async DR or with Metro Availability) and configure Failover scenarios with SRM via Nutanix SRA2. Replicate VMs using VMware vSphere Replication Appliance and configure Failover scenario with SRMMy question is which of the possibility would you recommend ? which is better in terms of performance and flexibility ?Thanks.
We have 2 Cluster - Primary cluster we are sending backup cluster for certain VM. If We restore snapshot on same cluster - > guest os can easly assign drive letter But whichever is near by snapshot which available at Backup Cluster if try to restore on Backup clusterDrive letter are not getting assign, which impacting DB Services as DB lying in unassigned drives
Hi.We are having no end of trouble with our backup software (druva) it basically keeps trying to talk on port 443 not 9440. Is there a way on a Prism element to be able to do some sort of rewrite so any traffic coming into the server incorrectly on port 443 can get rewritten to go to 9440 instead?
Hi. So I have veeam backing up a set of servers around 1TB worth of data they are backed up locally to a Qnap. The servers are Windows 2012R2 on ESXi. The site I want to be able to restore them to has a lot of space on a Nutanix system running AHC (Acropolis) So can I just say shunt the Veeam Backups to the 2nd Site and configure Veeam to talk to the Nutanix system if so how do i get it to restore the VMWare backups so i get get them working on Nutanix. It’s a pure DR Test initially and then if it works I might use the same method to actually migrate the whole sytem from the older vmware harware to living permenantly at the different site on acropolis.
I’m looking for a starting guide to testing failover to our Xi cluster. I believe that it is all configured and ready to go, but I’ve been tasked to write a procedure guide for a planned failover test during an outage window.Our on-prem cluster: AOS 6.5.2, PC pc.2022.6.0.1,.Hypervisor 20220304 build-342 Our Xi / DRaaS cluster is located in XI-US-EAST-1C, and has a few always-on servers. We are replicating a number of on-prem servers to it, on a one-hour, 4-hour, 1-day, and 1 week RPO basis, depending on device criticality. Some are defined as application consistent, some are not.We have about 70 protected entities.I am able to log into my local Prism Central and Prism Element, and I can get to SSH sessions on the CVMs and PC if need be. I am able to log into my.nutanix.com and see the configuration there, the AZs, and etc. Please let me know if some additional information about my cluster would help.What I need is a guide to failing over for testing, and recovering to the on-prem
We are running asynchronous Protection Domains and also employee Veeam backups of VMs. If we failover to the secondary site and then failback to the primary site, Veeam no longer recognizes the VMs in previously created backup jobs. We have to delete all the old backup jobs and set them up again. This is with ESXi hosts. Is that normal?
Hi can someone know the script to change the computer name during recovery plan. This is our script, everything is working except the script to change computer name. Thank you. netsh interface ip set address name="Ethernet 4" source=static ^ address=x.x.x. mask=255.255.255.0 gate=x.x.x.xnetsh interface ip set dnsservers "Ethernet 4" static x.x.x.xtimeout /t 10 /nobreakWMIC computersystem where name="computername" call rename name="newcomputername"shutdown.exe -r -t 00
Hi All, We are using third party backup solution for VM backup and restore of prism api version 2. If my third party solution installed vm scsi is not in order(scsi.0,scsi.1,scsi.3). If they are NOT in series, like local disk are scsi.0, scsi1, scsi.3 (scsi.2 is not there) Hot-added restore disk will be assigned ID scsi.2 as raw backup restore disk. As script assumes that restore disk would disk after scsi.2 and NOT confirm actual hot added disk could be scsi.2, it removes scsi.3 instead of scsi.2.
Hello Techies, I am a bit new to Nutanix and in my environment we have bunch of protection domains configured. Some are configured to replicate 1 minute and some are replicating at 1 hour interval. hosts are running VMWare ESXi 7.x versionsThe appropriate replication schedule has been configured in each protection domain at primary site. My question is as below:In a DR exercise(planned failover and both sites are available), if I failover the protection domains to our DR site, I am aware its basic functionality that the VMs will be powered off at primary site and we need to manually power them on at the DR site.Now, suppose VMs are running on DR site, will VMs start the reverse replication(from DR site to primary site) automatically to primary site's protection domain?or do I need to manually create replication schedule at DR site ?Do I need to remove the inactive protection domain at primary site? How do I make sure we won't have any data loss during the failback operation?I am confus
Hello Data replication, which was well done until yesterday, has stopped and is not progressing. Only one of the five scheduled schedules will be suspended. Note that the three entities that correspond to the schedule are excluded from the schedule for a while. After increasing the cpu and memory, I included it again. Is there any part or command I need to check? This is a dark site, so remote assistance is not available. Help me.
Hey guys,I made a quite new discovery that is totally new to me and I try to understand where this is comming from, maybe someone can help :)Scenario: There are 2 ESX clusters, connected via Metro. The DataStore on the source site is ~2TB, the datastore on the destination is about 1TB and I have no clue why :)Both DataStores only use compression, there are no other snapshots on the source side and this is for a couple of days now, so no curator run should be involved. Ideas anyone? Cheers, Flo
