We are currently evaluating Nutanix and also HYCU for backup. So far HYCU looks really good running on my CE lab server but there is one issue that they cannot answer to. For file restores on older recovery points (past the "Fast Restore" point), HYCU must copy the entire VM from the storage target and mount it to even start the search for a file. While for small VM's this my not be a big deal, larger VM's would cause a wait time based on your network connection to the storage target. For anyone using HYCU is this a concern to you? I'm very interested in hearing real world feed back here. Thanks!
Hi all We recently converted one of our environments to AHV/Acropolis from ESX/VCenter. All is well and runs just fine. One of the caveats is, we have a tertiary machine we use in “disaster” type scenarios and with this machine we would use our backup solution to “backup” a VM to and run with VMWare Workstation. As I understand it, Nutanix does not offer a “Workstation” type solution, so I am reaching out to hopefully receive some feedback on what a “new” solution would entail. Could I build a small PC and run Community edition on it? Can communtiy edition run on say an i9/32gb RAM/1TB ssd or does it need N+1 to function? This way I could point my backup solution to the new cluster or have my cluster be aware of a NAS solution and ingest the AHV VM as needed in these type scenarios. Any feedback will help me in the endeavor!
I'm trying to deploy FortiAuthenticator v5.5 VM but running into issues on AHV. I've tried creating the VM using the files from Fortinet but no instructions when using AHV per this guide: [url=https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fs3.amazonaws.com%2Ffortinetweb%2Fdocs.fortinet.com%2Fv2%2Fattachments%2F5795878a-1f78-11e9-b6f6-f8bc1258b856%2Ffac-vm-install-guide-43.pdf&data=02%7C01%7Cchris.mcgee%40traveledge.com%7Cb8b1d1749b034300f11e08d6a7523323%7C51cb5df4df054e5bb20c17d576ab85e3%7C0%7C0%7C636880368860136088&sdata=KUI2nTmasgbB5uxRBJhFzd25LM8FGG%2Bv6fzcY%2BwZ%2FkY%3D&reserved=0]https://s3.amazonaws.com/fortinetweb/docs.fortinet.com/v2/attachments/5795878a-1f78-11e9-b6f6-f8bc1258b856/fac-vm-install-guide-43.pdf[/url] The files I've used are the following: [list] [*]KVM - fackvm.qcow2, datadrive.qcow2 [*]Vmware - fac.vmdk, datadrive.vmdk [*]screenshot attached of my options from Fortinet [/list] [list=1] [*]Created vm adding cloned dis
I just created 4 new Server 2012R2 VMs and this morning I see yellow exclamation points on them with the message "VSS snapshot is not supported for the VM 'WinSrv12R2', because VM has IDE disks attached" These were created with 100G SATA drives and a SATA CD-ROM so I cant figure out why I'm seeing this message. Thank you
