Wow, congrats to all NTC, so proud to be in this group! Nutanix is on a very special journey and so looking forward to engage in the community in 2021 togheter with you guys.Thanks @aluciani, for making this possible, and also a special thanks to Mattias Sundling for showing me the light of Nutanix in 2017.
Have you tried to boot the VM in legacy mode? Does that give you any other results? It’s been a while since i ran Move from hyper-v but i remember i had some problems with getting then iscsi virtio drivers to install automatically. So wondering if you pre migration manually install the Nutanix VirtIO driver package could help? There is a similar Thread here, that might help: UEFI Servers do not boot after V2V to AHV using Move 3.3.1
Ok!So i just got this solved by support. There was a category for this project witch was stale. So support used a script called remove_stale_entries.py. CAUTION!Use this only after verifying with support that it’s safe. But for CE users, it might help :)import envimport argparsefrom insights_interface.insights_interface_pb2 import *from insights_interface.insights_interface import *interface = InsightsInterface('127.0.0.1', 2027)parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()parser.add_argument("--uuid", nargs="*", required=True, help="Enter stale entity's UUID as a list separated by space", default=)parser.add_argument("--entity_type", required=True, help="Enter the type of entity. Example : task,vm etc. ")parser.add_argument("--cas", help="Use this flag for deleting CAS entities, else deletion will fail", action="store_true", required=False)if len(sys.argv)==1: parser.print_help() sys.exit(1)args = parser.parse_args()entity_list = args.uuidentity_type = args.entity_typecas = args.casg = G
Currently working for GDM witch is a local MSP here in Sundsvall Sweden, long history of Hyper-V and VMware, set up our first Nutanix Block, a 3460 G7 14th October, currently migrating customers in to the new plattform. hopfully there will be more X-boxes filling the datacenter soon :D
Where are u running Foundation? Portable on Windows machine it seams. Try downloading Foundation for Virtual Box, install the foundation Appliance on Virtual box and try again, i spent six hours back in october with troubbleshooting Portable Foundation for windows. Downloaded VirtualBox and ran foundation from that Linux Appliance, worked first try after changeing to that approach! Look at this KB how to set up VirtualBox https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Field-Installation-Guide-v4-0%3Av40-cluster-environment-foundation-t.html
I guess they can, however, it’s unsupported! But if you install some old VirtIO from back in the days when XP was supported from Fedora it might work! Nutanix have no VirtIO that’s supporting WinXP that i know of. But take a look here: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/Install the VirtIO drivers prior to running Nutanix Move, and then move the VM without credentials, try to boot. No guaranties, but atleast you have a safe rollback plan if it does not work:connet network on Source VM Power Source VM onhope that helps :)
Now i am installed foundation 4.6 on esxi. when it gets booting installer media. it gives error The target is not in ssh able or not in the phoenix. What is the phoenix ? Phoenix is the os on the node when it ships from factory! I have none exprience with Lenovo nodes, but with NX nutanix nodes you have DiscoveryOS on the nodes from factory. Does the Foundation VM have Layer2 access to the network where the NICs on the nodes are connected?Does Foundation discover the nodes automatically? If yes, try adding them manually, with serial and IPMI-IP.Also another question: What subnet do you intend to configure your CVMs with? I need the following info to get a better picture: Foundation VM-IP and netmask IPMI-IPs and Netmask intended CVM IP and netmaskThanks in Advance!
Okay!sounds like you have a decent setup!and you can browse the IPMI-s from the Foundation VM and you’re setting the correct passwords for the IPMI interfaces in the Foundation GuI. i would still like you to test out VirtualBox with foundation on your laptop with a direct cable in to the same VLAN as the new nodes and to try running from there instead of an esxi appliance thats because the networking seams to be in order what i can se. let me know how it goes!
Hi there!if you chose ”protect” the VM will be protected in the ProtectionDomain, and replication of that VM will be made possible to another cluster if you like. Simply press the protect button to ”add” the selected vm(s) to the protection domain.If you for some reason, dont want the VM to be protected anymore, you can remove it from the protection domain by simply mark the VM in the Protected Entities ans press the Unprotect button. Protect = Add Unprotect = Remove Hope that helps :)
