Hi,We have just implemented a pairing with a customer on-prem cluster and a protected side cluster and created some protections domains.All seems to works well but we search to obtain more information on protected side.We are currently unable to view Entity Count, Next Snapshot Time, or Entities on a selected Data Protection.Is there a way to obtain this informations ? Is there anything thats was badly configured ?Thanks for your help ;)
Hi,For a new customer we currently configure the data protection context from the production cluster to a DR cluster.The customer want to reduce the storage sizing by selecting which disks on the VMs that will be replicated.Is it possible ? I don’t find anything about this on official documentations.Thanks and best regards.
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?
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
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.
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.
