Hello Team,Is it possible to transform a full-flash cluster to an hybrid one without losing data? (third party platform).Licenses should not be upgraded because SSD space would not change but the necessary SAS disks would be added to add extra cold data space
Hello Experts,I hope you are doing will,Can you please assist in providing a document or an explanation regarding the ramifications from switching between AOS LTS and AOS STS releases -if its possible - ? so far I have seen threads talking about switching from LTS to STS only. BRAdel
Looking for anyone that has been successful with installing windows 11 on Nutanix AHV?I have tried, in my VM creation i have selected UEFI and Secure Boot. What I can’t seem to get to is how to enable TPM? When VM boots there is no way to get into bios to enable TPM. So how do you do that?Thanks
Hi thereI’ve question about difference between configuring bond(port aggregiation) via manage_ovs and ovs_vsctlI wanna to change bond that is in active_backup mode to active_active balance tcpI’ve confused a little bit,what is difference between doing this with manage_ovs and ovs_vsctl
Hello everybody,I was unsuccessful to boot from a SATA CDROM in an AHV VM on different Nutanix-cluster with the same AOS 5.15.4 LTS version.Allthough I explicitly selected to boot from the SATA CDROM, the VM says ‘Could not read from cdrom (Code xxx) and instantly jumps into 2048 game (what the heck).As soon as I switch to an IDE CDROM, the system boots properly.Is this a bug in AOS 5.15.4 LTS ?ThanksDidi7
Just a quick question about sizing SSD capacity to HDD capacity in a node (in a new homogenous cluster). When specifying drive space in a node, what is the percentage SSD to HDD per node at a minimum. Is there a best practice guide that someone can point me towards? I’m not asking about the number of HDDs vs the number of SSDs.The question is around capacity and not number or drives. e.g. I configure a node with 4TB of SSD (2x1.92TB) and 60TB of HDD (10 x 6TB) and Nutanix Sizer says this is fine. This is roughly 6.25% SSD But what should I have as a minimum SSD capacity of of a hybrid node is 6% Okay, or should it be more like 10% or 20% (or more)?
Hi All,We have scheduled to perform a Nutanix Cluster upgrade.Existing Setup:3xDell XC730 XD-12 running on AHV 20170830.453 / AOS(5.15.3). This cluster is hosting around 50 VMs.Upgrade to:4* NX 8235 -G7-4215R -CMIs it possible to add the 4*NX to existing cluster and then remove 3xDell XC servers. We are trying to achieve minimum downtime here without major outage.Per Nutanix documentation https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details/?targetId=Hardware-Admin-Ref-AOS-v5_17%3Ahar-product-mixing-restrictions-r.html , it seems mixing hardware isn't feasible. Could you please confirm if there is any work around possible?Regards,
I just updated a cluster’s AOS and am now getting the warning:AHV version 20190916.360 is currently installed on host, while minimum compatible AHV version is 20190916.410But I cannot AHV without updating also AOS to 5.19.2 which would change my plan to STS (currently installed 220.127.116.11 LTS)So I have to ignore the warning and waiting for a compatible AOS LTS version, or should I change to 5.19.2 STS?
What problems or impacts can I have after upgrading the Prism Central to a version that is not compatible with the AOS of the sites that are managed by Prism Central?Will I have any unavailability to access the PE of the remote site via the web because of the version that is not compatible with Prism Central?For example I will update the PC to version pc.2020.11.0.1 and AOS of my PE will be in version 5.11.2 which by Nutanix matrix is not compatible. I cannot update the AOS of the EP at this time.
I have a server that no longer needs one of its 2TB disk. I know how to remove the disk from the VM but, how do I remove that VMDK from the Nutanix Storage container? Is there a way to browse it and then delete it? 2TB is a lot of space that I would like to reclaim.
Hi I have a question in the Nutanix enviroment.I need to change control for the ssh to CVM so that just some IPs can access to avoid some intrusion access.I checked the <Nutanix security Guide> and there are some descriptopm in TCP Wrapper Integration, But after I changed the file of /etc/hosts.allow to include just the allowed IPs and CVM management subnet. But It will be changed to default after the cluster security config schedule(by default daily.) Is it possible to change the sshd allow list to achieved this goal? there are security requreiments for the enviroment. thanks.
Hello, We have the VM with the file serber on installing on one of the node of our Nutanix. For now the size of the disk is 3.5 TB, but we wanted to extend this size up to 4.5TB. Is somebody knows if VM will work correctly with the such big size of the disk?
Hi!I am wondering, if there is a quick way to restore from a failed ESXi upgrade.Imaging you have fired up a ONE-Klick-Upgrade of the ESXi image, and (as see with ESXi7.0U1GA) the hypervisor is not boot up again.At ESXi level i can backup config and restore config after a plane install. But what about CVM?Setting up the whole node with foundation is a nightmare, if the node is already installed in an customer environment, and can’t be discovered.The best way would be, that the foundation within a cluster could deploy a CVM to a plain ESXi and rebuild the cluster-node from the information stored in the cluster...
HI Team under Prism we’ve created a few VM’s (windows), one of VM is our File Server, current configuration is IDE disk 1TB, (60GB OS, 900GB shared folders). probably is better to create one virtual disk 60GB on OS and the second virtual disk as storage (1TB) or more.question is how to shrink current IDE disk from 1TB → 60GB, and if IDE should be change on SCSI disk, what Nutanix recommended?instruction to shrink disk IDE->SCSIthanks Dariusz
I know that this question has been asked in this forum a few years back but I wanted to see if the answer changed since the newer releases of AOS. In my case, I’m running AOS version 5.15.4 LTS and found that our 7-node cluster was configured for RF3 - although most of our containers are RF2 (the exceptions being the “NutanixManagementShare: and “SelfServiceContainer” containers).Since most of our containers are only RF2 I’m not too concerned about extra overhead but was curious if AOS now supports the switchback from RF3 on the cluster.
We are new to Nutanix. We are migrating from ESXi to AHV. We currently have some level of CPU oversubscription in place on ESXi. We anticipate the need to oversubscribe CPU on some clusters and I am looking for ways to do this safely. I’ve looked in the Best practices guide but there was very little there. Any help would be appreciated.
