Hi everyone!I have an existing Veeam Backup Server running version 9.5 and I wonder if I can use it in the Foundation Mine with Veeam installer or do I have to upgrade to 10? (As far as I know there’s no documentation on Mine compatibility with Veeam Backup & Replication versions).Also, I have a perpetual socket licence for the Veeam Server I use actually. Will they work?Thank you in advance,
I need assistance in resolving a problem with File Analytics, which indicates that my memory has exceeded 90%. I update the VM and add 8 GB after it displays the critical error "One or more File Analytics VM components have failed." I did a power reboot, but nothing changed. Please assist.
Hello everyone,I have downloaded the Nutanix Community edition(2020.09.16) from Download Community Edition | Nutanix Community and installed on my system and now I want to deploy Nutanix Files on it . Can anyone here guide me for that . Please tell me if there is need of downloading any software or something.I can access prism on my network.Please guide me for deploying Nutanix Files.Thank you
In this video - which walks through setting up Objects for multi-tenancy/self service - you’ll see how s3 users in different departments, organizations, or domains can have a single Nutanix object store divided up between them for efficient and secure resource sharing. The video covers such features as multi directory integration for IAM, multi-FQDN, quotas, objects browser (self-service portal) and bucket tagging…. and in true software-defined fashion we're continuing to add features that make Objects ever more optimized for multi-tenancy.
Good evening, Following problem:I do have a single folder sitting on one of my shares, and I tried literally everything to get it deleted.When trying to delete, or move to a different share, I only get the error “An unexpected network error occured”, so, not very helpful on that front.I was able to change said folders owner (logged into CVM via ssh → logged into FSVM) via afs share.get_authorization_info <share> <folder>However, this didn't help.To make a long story short: Is there a way to delete a folder within a share on a FSVM directly?Thanks in advance!
Hello,We recently purchased 2 x NX-8235N-G8-CM (total of 4 nodes), which will be explicitly used as storage servers.I am having some trouble performing the initial configuration and wondering if I could get some support as I am stuck. This would be my first time setting up a Nutanix device and not sure where to begin.I did try to use the Nutanix Foundation, but no luck while trying to follow what was done here: I do have few questions regarding Foundation though.What I did:Plug in the new devices’s IPMI/data port to a dummy switch (IPMI/HOST IP will be on same subnet) Plug in my laptop with a prod IP address (i.e. 10.8.1.0.24) to switch Launch Nutanix Foundation for Windows Follow what was done in the above videos with my IP addressesNote: I am not running any DHCP nor did I set any static IP for IPMI/AHV/CVM. I read that AHV is already installed for devices sold in the US; however, not sure if the CVM is already installed though. The setup process does ask for manual entries for IPMI/
Veeam Backup for Nutanix File server SMB Share backup - From Snapshot path? Currently we are backing up the Nutanix file share backups using Veeam backup (NAS SMB file share) Current settings:Backup Directly from FIle shareThis option is skipping some of the locked files whcih is expected…Would like to change it to Backup from storage snapshot at the following path:? I would like to know what would be the snapshot path for Nutanix file SMB shares? what I need to give here? Can someone suggest so that I can avoid skipped files issue on the backup jobs
I have what, I think, should be a simple request, but for the life of me I’m struggling with it. My boss would like a list of all file shares in Nutanix Files with a count of files inside those shares. I cannot seem to find a way to report on this via Files Dashboard or Analytics. A simple .csv export would be fine. If I drill down into an individual share, I can see the data I need, but I am not really keen on doing that for approximately 100 shares.
I have a customer currently deploying Nutanix Files and they are looking to use File Analytics in place of their current audit tool, Lepide.They are happy with the file-level audit trails in FA, but have asked if the same audit trails are available for Shares - e.g. Is there a log anywhere of who created a specific Share, who last modified it, or who deleted it? I can’t find an answer to this in the documentation, and if I create a share in the Files Demo all I get is an “Event” in the Files console which doesn’t tell me who did it.
Hello, We are trying to find out the level or bandwidth of the iSCSI traffic that Analytics requires. This is because we have allocated Analytics in a different network than the CVMs (Data Service IP) so the traffic will be managed by the firewall. We don’t want to overload the firewall with this kind of traffic that could affect to the rest. Any experience with it?. I haven’t been able to find this kind of detail in the documentation. Thank you!
In a traditional three-tier architecture, application and database administrators often work with storage administrators to create a custom storage design to suit their environment, which includes designating the RAID level and block size for different types of files, such as database tablespaces or log files. This process can become cumbersome to manage, especially if there are multiple databases. Nutanix eliminates the problems associated with choosing the optimal RAID and block size. Once you create a VG with the required number of vDisks for your database or application, you’re ready to deploy. The following table outlines the recommended minimum disk layout for a database such as Oracle. For other workloads please refer to the specific application’s best practices guide.There are two ways to create vDisks on Nutanix for your VMs: Nutanix native vDisks. Nutanix volume groups. Nutanix Native vDisksThe Nutanix native vDisk option simplifies VM administration because it doesn’t requ
Nutanix Mine is the product name for joint solutions between Nutanix and select data protection software vendors. Nutanix Mine is a dedicated backup solution, where only backup component VMs run on the Mine cluster and the cluster storage is used to store backup workloads.This version of Mine is a fully integrated data protection appliance that combines the Nutanix AOS and Objects software with the HYCU Data Protection for Enterprise Clouds solution. Mine can provide data protection for applications running in a Nutanix cluster and also for other virtualized workloads running in your datacenter.Mine includes the following features: Enterprise-grade data protection to any workload in your datacenter. Integrated installation and configuration experience. Integrated management experience. Seamless scale-out, self-healing, and break-fix functionality. Note: The Mine cluster is not a disaster recovery solution, thus restoring primary or production workloads to the Mine cluster is not
Renaming a top level directory (TLD) on a distributed file share might fail with error “invalid device”
A distributed share spreads the workload by distributing the hosting of top-level directories across FSVMs. The issue is due to the fact that Nutanix Files uses DFS namespace to provide shares to the Windows clients, meaning that the client will be connecting to the generic DFS namespace and not, in particular, the FSVM which serves the share that is which holds the VG for the share. So if the client connects to an FSVM where it just holds the re-parse point within the DFS namespace the rename operation will fail with an error of "Invalid device". The workaround is to make sure that you connect to the FSVM serving the top level domain (TLD). Please refer to the following KB article for the detailed process to connect to the FSVM serving the TLD. Once connected to the serving FSVM the rename operation can be performed successfully. https://portal.nutanix.com/kb/000004187
Hi,If we look at Files instance → Performance → IO Breakdown → IOPS, do these numbers factor in RF for Writes (i.e. actually are the underlying HCI storage IOPS)? or are they the IOPS purely from the Files point of view?E.g., if we have 10% of Writes to an SMB share, but set RF3 for the underlying Files container, will we see 10% or 30% here in this graph?Thank you.
