Based on Error, it seems that in-question CVM is not able to reach other CVMs (svmips) in cluster. However, This needs more investigation.Please Involve Nutanix Support for further investigation.Nutanix Support: https://www.nutanix.com/support-services/product-support/support-phone-numbers
Hello Senthil_P,Thanks for reaching out to us. In absence of cluster access or any logs, we would say that we should following config on NICs. lacp: off lacp-fallback: true lacp_speed: offTry changing below mentioned details on all hosts and check if it fixes reported issue. If not, I would recommend opening a case with Nutanix Support for more detailed investigation of reported issue.Happy Troubleshooting !!
Hello @jagan_Rajaram We can use following procedure for use SysPrep with Cloning:1. Log in to the web console by using the Nutanix credentials, and then browse to the VM dashboard (see VM Dashboard).2. Select the VM that you want to clone, click Launch Console, and then log in to the VM with administrator credentials.3. Configure Sysprep with the system cleanup action of your choice, specify whether or not you want to generalize the installation, and then choose to shut down the VM.* Open the command prompt as an administrator and navigate to the sysprep folder.* cd C:\windows\system32\sysprep* Generalize the installation and then shut down the VM.* C:\Windows\system32\sysprep>sysprep /generalize /shutdown /oobe* The VM shuts down automatically.* Note: Make sure to shut down the VM. Restarting the VM will result in the VM losing its generalized state and in Sysprep attempting to find an answer file that has not been provided yet. For the same reasons, until you have completed this p
Nutanix best practices dictate that regular virtual disk drives are configured on the SCSI bus, and CD-ROM drives are configured on the IDE bus. While regular disk drives can be configured on the IDE bus, it is possible that performance degradation may be seen on the drive.If this performance impact is deemed acceptable, then this check can be ignoredNCC health check uvm_ide_disk_check determines if any vDisks or VMDKs are attached to any guest VMs using the IDE controller. The IDE controller is subject to lower performance because of its low queue depth in relation to SCSI.

Migrating Cross-Hypervisor for Witness VM is not currently a tested workflow. Therefore, we would recommend the following steps:* Unregister the old Witness VM.* Click the gear icon in the main menu and then select Configure Witness in the Settings page.* To unregister an existing Witness VM, click the Unregister button.* Shutdown the old Witness VM* Deploy a new Witness VM on VMWare* Register the new witness to the two-node clusterWitness VM download: https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/WitnessVMTwo-Node Cluster / Witness VM guide: https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Web-Console-Guide-Prism-v5_15:wc-cluster-two-node-c.html
Hello Matthieu,Thanks for the response. Based on the details shared, this is an application layer or OS Level action. I would recommend you to reach out to Microsoft for details guidance on above scenario.Based on my past experience, the simplest way of running a program at startup on Windows is to place an executable file in the Startup folder. All the programs that are in this folder will be executed automatically when the computer opens. The location of this folder on Windows is following:%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartupYou can open this folder more easily by pressing WINDOWS KEY + R and then copying this text shell:startup.We can do this by creating a BAT (.bat) / VBS (.vbs) or Powershell (.ps1).

Hello Graham,Thanks for reaching out to us. I would suggest to start from checking IPMI Addresses reachability from CVMs & Hosts ? We may need to troubleshoot reported issue. Therefore, I would recommend to open a support case with Lenovo who can in-turn can open a case with Nutanix for further assistance.Let me know, if you have more queries.Reference KB 1524Rohan
Hello Tony,Regarding upgrade to 6.1 from 126.96.36.199, it is NOT SUPPORTED. Current version (188.8.131.52) to Target version is not supported in this case. Current version contains code updates not available in Target version. We may have to wait for another STS Version.Regarding upgrade from STS to LTS, we should be able to upgarde to later without issues. Example: 5.19.2 (Last STS Version) can upgrade to 5.20 (LTS)Rohan
Hello Eric,Starting AOS 5.19, to live migrate VMs between AHV clusters, we have the "Cross-Cluster Live Migration (CCLM)" feature available. This feature is part of Leap on Prism Central and will help you live migrate VMs between AHV clusters. You can find more information on this at the link: Cross-Cluster Live MigrationPlease ensure you are meeting all the requirements for Leap and CCLM, requirements are shared at the link below.CCLM Requirements – Cross-Cluster Live Migration RequirementsLeap Requirements – Leap RequirementsOne of the primary requirements is to have identical CPU feature set on both clusters, if it doesn't match then the live migration will fail.If you feel above option to be complicated, we can use option of moving VM disks between two AHV Clusters. Refer to KB: 4707Referenece Link: How to move VM disks between two AHV ClustersLet me know, if you have any further queries.Rohan
Hello @IPC_ahaas I would recommend to involve support on this issue. As next step, password for account “nutanix” should be reset in order to resolve reported issue.Reference Link: How to reset the CVM password back to default when user forgot Prism and CVM passwordsHowever, i recommend to involve support for steps mentioned in above linkRohan
Hello @Eric-The_Viking If you are looking for a easy way out, the best possible way is to setup a DR solution using Protection domain and create replication between source and target for the specific VM and then failover the VM to the target cluster. This will ensure minimal downtime.More details: Is it possible to live migrate a VM from one AHV cluster to another AHV cluster?Let me know, if you have more queries.
