Hi,

I am going through Section 2: Cluster IP Configuration chapter, under the topic of Segmented networks Step 1, the link in the slide goes to portal.nutanix.com and redirects to my.nutanix.com with error "Login failed"
Support Portal service is inactive, is there any other way to access the KB/Docs which are mentioned in the course?

Thank you.

I am having the same issue on Section 2, I cannot view any of th edocuments from Section2, module 4 on "Clsuter IP Address Configuration". They all link back to the nutanix site, and give me a login failure trying to open the docs.

Would Nutanix consider making a transcript available for most of this? Honestly, I'm really tired of clicking here and clicking there when I could just read the text and be done with it. In general I'm not a big fan of video or animation.

Is section 3 out today Monday Aug 17th? If so I did not receive email or deleted it on accident.

Hi Vaseem,

Students who do not work for a Nutanix customer or partner can request access to the documents from Section 2 by emailing education@nutanix.com.

The support portal has resources in addition to documentation that we cannot make available outside of our customer and partner communities (for example, opening tickets). We are in the process of updating the eLearning content to provide alternate options for students who do not have Support portal accounts.

I apologize for the confusion. Someone will reach out with the necessary documents shortly.

Hello, Mark.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

It looks like you are receiving the error message because you have not created an account on the Nutanix Support portal. As an employee of a Nutanix partner, you should be able to create the account at https://my.nutanix.com/#/signup

If you have issues creating your account, or still cannot access the documents, please contact us at education@nutanix.com. We'd be glad to assist you.

Hello, Michael.

Although we do not have a transcript of the eLearning content per se, I highly recommend our Product Documentation (https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs). This content is one of multiple source documents when developing eLearning and instructor-led training.

Thanks Meghan. Unfortunately I apparently don't have access to this. I have sent an email to the portal people; I think my company is a partner (although we may only be in the process of applying).

Thanks for letting me know, Michael.

The documentation link I provided shows our public-facing documentation. If you're being prompted for a login at https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs please mention that in your communciation with the portal team. It should bring you to a page that says "Currently viewing public documentation" at the top.

I like this course but it would be very benificial to have at least a PDF of all the slides to look through at a later time, a book with all topics covered would be best though.

Doing the lab today!

There's a mistake in Day 1. One of the questions asks where the write data gets stored, which is the metadata cache; however, the form says that is wrong and says the correct answer is the SSD cache. This needs to be corrected.

Dear folks at nutanix,
I have problems accessing the documents linked in section 2 of the NPP course, as I get a login error. I have an account at my.nutanix.com, but I cannot access the resources. Please check...

Help me understand why on a NX-3050/3060 only Node B has 1 Boot/metadata SSD & 4 Data HDDs while all the remaining nodes have 2 SSDs and 4 HDDS? I'm looking at the slide Nutanix Adminstration 4.1.1 Section 2 - Front Panel of all NX-3050 and NX-3060 Blocks. Is this a mistake in the slide or is this how it's actually architected?

Hello, Raymond.

You are absolutely correct! The image for Node B needs to be updated, because it has TWO SSDs, not one. Good eye!

Here are the tech specs for the NX-3050 series: https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=Hardware_Admin_Ref-Acr_v4_5:har_system_specifications_nx3050_r.html

I'll pass along this info to our content team.

Anyone else having issues today testing the VMware Horizon Client? It worked for a couple days ago, but today I get the following message:

" The assigned desktop source for this desktop is not currently available...."

Hopefully, I'm able to get into the lab today.
