Hi @Meezoo3000

I think that this existing topic will help you https://next.nutanix.com/server-virtualization-27/is-it-possible-to-live-migrate-a-vm-from-one-ahv-cluster-to-another-ahv-cluster-27355.

And Nutanix Xtract For VMs say "In this release, only migration of VMs from ESXi source to AHV target is supported.". You will need to make manual migration.

Hi @Meezoo3000

You could use this command in a CVM:

nfs_ls -R -a (I don't remember right parameters). After this You can access that files by nfs://127.0.0.1//.acropolis/.
