There is no procedure on how to do this. I was looking into compiling the drivers but that wasnt working either. Lets hope the new community edition will be based on a newer kernel. I'm currently running AHV 20191030.415 and AOS 2020.09.16. What I did was installing the older version and only upgrade AOS to the latest community edition and leave AHV on the older version.

As Prism Central is a requirement and Frame connects to Prism Central. It needs to be up and running all the time. When it is down you can't use frame anymore (updates of machines, new sessions, start machines etc). So if this is a critical environment you should scale out your Prism Central deployment to multiple machines (Prism Central Management → Scale out PC)
Just tested it. You can’t set a affinity rule on a guest machine when the host (where the guest vm should run) is in maintenance. It will give an error. For the anti-affinity rules it doesnt make any sense. As anti-affinity is just that a group of guest vm's should not run on the same host.
Yes correct. If foundation cant find them you can configure IPMI manually and provide the ipadresses and credentials to foundation. Make sure foundation can talk to ipmi and to the ahv/cvm addresses provided in foundation. If that is not possible because of vlans, then foundation via a seperate switch with no config at all (layer 2, no vlans).
Thank you @JeroenTielen As I mentioned that I want to run Vsphere not AHV, how could I create the cluster, should it be via prism or esxi? is there any practical resources that I can benefit from since I am an intermediate in nutanix. I think that I can`t go with the option of prism center since I don`t have the license, so I will connect the servers directly to the switch. You need to run foundation to reimage the nodes and to create the cluster. I think this is the easiest method for you. Running foundation on your laptop will install esx on the nodes, create a cvm and create a cluster.But I think best is to hire some external expertise who can help you with this. Normally this is done withing 2 hours.
Well you have 2 seperate clusters (each with 3 nodes) you said. And you want a single cluster? To do that you have a couple of options: Create a new cluster with all 6 nodes; Expand 1 cluster with the 3 other nodes.Or, if both cluster are operational, deploy a prism central vm and connect both cluster to it. The rack config doesnt matter. Just make sure all nodes are connected correctly on 10Gbps connections. And, according to the best practices, your network switch topology should be leaf and spine.
