We bought several Nutanix clusters in 2019 and on two of them, we deployed a cloud connect appliance in AWS via Prism element so that we could backup our VMs to the cloud. We setup retention to 7 snaps locally and 62 on the remote (AWS) side. The question I have for everyone that uses Cloud Connect for backups is, does the S3 bucket that gets created by Cloud Connect ever stop growing in size. On our HQ Nutanix cluster, that Cloud Connect S3 bucket is currently sitting at 164TB and 177 million objects. This is a small 3 node cluster with only 10 VMs being backed up to the Cloud Connect appliance. Current allocated space for those VMs is 3TB. Actual consumed by them as reported by Prism is about half of that. Looking at the S3 bucket created by cloud connect, I see that a lifecycle rule was created to move objects to infrequent access after 30 days. I see nothing to expire old objects and there are objects in the bucket dating all the way back to 2019. So at first glance, it doesn’t loo
Hello all experts,I have some question about create/revert snapshot/recovery point of VM in AHV cluster:Can user (have permission to access cluster portal to clone VM, create recovery point) access and create recovery point by themselves? Can they revert/restore the snapshot/recovery point by them-self (the same as Hyper-V)? What if they request to do by themselves, what I need to do? Now I have admin permission but cannot revert, just can clone VM from recovery point.Thank you so much
Hello,I’m using Commvault to back up our Nutanix file server cluster. I have a distributed share that is failing with the following error:4788 26ec 07/19 16:25:38 271 CTREE rebuild failed with error 652 (duplicate keys rejected and listed); sysiocod=0 4788 26ec 07/19 16:25:38 271 CTREE resumeAndRebuild: unable to rebuild indexAny ideas?
I opened a thread a month ago about Cloud Connect S3 consumption and when checking on it today I found that it was closed to comments.https://next.nutanix.com/nutanix-disaster-recovery-29/aws-cloud-connect-s3-consumption-issue-41499?postid=63137#post63137There was no explanation for this action in the thread or via PM to me. Can someone let me know why this was done?
Our 5-node Nutanix Mine with Veeam is using the default 75% as the watchdog capacity.The Nutanix Mine administration guide mentions paramters associated with this:restart_jobs_threshold_percentcancel_jobs_threshold_percentstop_issuing_jobs_threshold_percentand advises customers should contact support if they wish to tweak these.My question is this: Which organisation’s support covers this? Veeam or Nutanix?
I want to be able to export a VM in OVA format from powershell. I suppose any script or command line function would work, but I want to automate the process. We have a large fileserver VM with millions of very small files. Backing up that many files is taking longer than we would like, so we ideally want to just export the VM on a daily basis and have the backup done that way. It should be faster to do that than to have a backup process handle millions of tiny files, the overhead is just too much.I already have a script that will clone the VM and delete the VM, I just need the middle part to export the VM out of Nutanix to have that backup copy. If I can’t get the full VM as I would prefer, I could tolerate having copies of the VM disks copied out as an automated process, to recreate the VM at a later date. This backup copy will only be for extreme emergencies, we already have snapshots of the VM and replicas at our remote site, but for auditing purposes we need a copy of the dat
Hello, warriors of the digital ageCould you help a beginner in trouble? https://next.nutanix.com/discussion-forum-14/snap-shot-delete-but-have-a-large-capacity-41093 https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/kbs/details?targetId=kA03200000098CQCAY A few days ago, I asked about the capacity increase due to snapshots, and I was told that curation would return to normal in about 36 hoursHowever, when I checked, I realized that the capacity was not reducedIf the capacity is the same, open the case and get support from Nutanix's SREThe customer's contract has expired, so we can't get supportWhat should we do to reduce capacity? Where should I look?I would appreciate it if you could answer this question
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 everyone!I read on this blog about end-to-end encryption that encrypting all replication traffic between all AOS clusters participating in replication.I want to know about end-to-end encryption on DC-DR replication.Where can I see the full documentation about that (in what features and how do I configure it)?
Hello, I am seeing something odd that I don’t remember to be normal. I have an Async DR protection domain replicating from a 5.20 LTS AHV source cluster to a target STS 188.8.131.52 cluster. There are a decent amount of VM's being protected today and the snapshots are replicating, but the “entities” and “VM count” on the target cluster PD page show “0” - I don’t believe I have ever seen that before and can’t find a picture in my other documents. Is that normal? Could it be something between the versions where the target doesn’t show the VM entities that are part of the protection domain? Any help on the sanity check is appreciated. Thanks!
