Hi everyone, I imaged a nutanix cluster these days, and found strange phenomena. I found many error key words in foundation node log, but imaging showed successful finally. I clicked "retry imaging failed nodes with last config" many times, after some node failed, and it succeed. I`d like to know why it failed and succeed after just retry. also the foundation process tab showed 3 node failed at 78%, and the node log showed it`s finished ! and after retry, it`s 100%. I`m very worried about if it`s truly successful and there`s potential risks. p.s my environment: Foundation 3.1.1, AOS 4.6.1, ESXI5.5U3D，NX-1065-G4 [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/1437iFB4C37F4160B7ACC.png[/img] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/1439iD2B0077C9E4C1B09.png[/img] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/1441i15C9718ECFC6FC6C.png[/img][img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/1443i821C11FF15
Hey, We recently upgraded on of our clusters to AOS 5.01. This process went flawlessly! After the upgrading I noticed some minor bugs which I would like to share: 1) Missing names: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/2616i82890AFCEDDB58CB.png[/img] Minor but worth mentioning. 2)Missing title: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/2618i073B8D8311B00E3B.png[/img] Minor but worth mentioning 3)Missing export button. This is the main reason I'm posting this(preventing others to waste their time on this); It took me quite a while to find this "invisible button". [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/2619i018A0275429043E4.png[/img] With AOS 5.01, the (invisible) button is on the right side of the graph: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/2620iEE0200D1B2B8CE66.png[/img] If I come accross more bugs I will post them here Seba
Good morning... evening... night all over the world ^^ I'm wondering what are the technical differences between Async DR and Backup. What I've red in documentation is that Backup does not allow running the virtual machines on the remote site. This comes with many questions as I couldn't find any detailed description of the backup mechanism. As far as I understand, both works exactly the same. Only difference is that on the remote site, the backup target PD cannot be promoted to allow running of the VMs. Is this correct ? is this the only difference ? Otherwise, what are all the differences between both modes ? Any impact on the size of used on the target space ? ...

Hi, I am new to Nutanix so would appreciate a bit of advice on importing a cluster into System Center Virtual Machine Manager. I have an existing Nutanix Hyper-V cluster which I want to manage via SCVMM. Has anyone got any advice in importing this into SCVMM and anything I should be aware of? Also, has anyone converted Standard switches to logical switches once the cluster has been imported or is that not a good idea? Thanks!
Hi guys， two basic questions: 1)can cvm cluster and ESXI data use the same 10g switch with no performance penelty ? (I have only one pair of 10g switch, and NX1065 one dual port card. As we know, cvm cluster must use 10g network, but I`d like also to use 10g for ESXI data network. ) 2) generally ESXI mgmt(usually,vmkernel port for NFS access) is on the same 10g link with cvm cluster(also CVM prism mgmt), If the user`d like to have a separate uplink or subnet for ESXI MGMT, is it ok ? I`m worried about the performance problem. thanks in advance !
Hello, I have had no issues building Microsoft Failover clusters using volume groups, vDisks, and MPIO; the procedure is very straightforward. Now I want to clean up a few test configurations and remove unwanted clusters, but I'm not sure of the best approach. How do I: [list] [*]List and remove attachments [*]List and remove vDisks [*]List and remove volume groups[/list]I'm sure it's all in the acli; I'm hoping someone has already written a procedure. Thanks, Scott
Hello- I had a question on remote site best practices. When we create a remote site for PD replication do you think we should create a new container at the remote site for the replicated vms to reside in or just use our existing container that is running that active vms at the remote site? In the second scenario the active vms at the remote site would be on the same container as the snapshots replicating from the PD active site. Just wonder what other people are doing? Thanks, Erik
Hi all, we're on AOS 4.7.2 with vmware 6.0 upd 2 I was thinking to add a secondary vmknic management interface on all esxi hosts (to be used for backups) doing that just on vmware config without touching anything in cluster config? Thanks a.
While trying to add a new node to my cluster where I need to re-image before adding to the cluster, the iso_whitelist.json in the foundations downloads page appears to be broke, just redirect back to the support portal. appologies if this is the wrong place to rais the issue Regards, Stephen
Hi all, I created a document describing how to upgrade ESXi on the XC platform for a customer. It uses the Dell iDRAC specifically. If anyone has feedback on anything that was missed or could make things easier I'd appreciate it.

Hello Nutanix Currently, my demo cluster has had problem in removing host from cluster The host that I wanted to remove has an SSD showing status: "Marked for removal but not detachable" and it has been kept by that status for a long time with nothing changed despite that the host was shown up as successfully removed the host So, after that I have tried reinstalling this host but that status still showing up and I cannot do anything with the new reinstalled host as well as expanding the cluster with it By the way, I noted that before reinstalling this host, this host was running as a cluster member
I'm running NOS 4.7.1 with vSphere 6.0 and loving the seemless vm migration to the remote site using Metro (for a planned outage). Is there a way to perform a failback just as seemlessly - no downtime? After reading through Mike McGhee's v2.0 Best Practices document I wasn't able to find if this is possible or not.
Dears, I found I can`t find ESXI 6.0U2 and AOS188.8.131.52 release in Nutanix compatibility online tool. but I can find ESXI6.0U2 in the iso whitelist json. So It make me confused Which release exactly can be supported by nutanix ？ Finally, I install ESXI6.0U2 and AOS4.6.1. I·m not sure if Compatibility tool is just a best practise or not up to date timely. Can I simply always install newest ESXI version and NOS ?
