Hello, We have just migrated our entire infrastructure to Nutanix. We are in the process of moving an old file server to a new windows vm. We are running AHV as the hypervisor and are on 10GB ethernet.

I am experiencing slow network transfers between these 2 VM's on the same Nutanix Cluster. So bad that the IOPS dont regiser above 300 in Prism.

Any thoughts?

Hi Brado-Mski
Could you give us more information about your setup?
Which OS are your old and new file server VMs running?
How are you copying files between the old and new VMs?
Have you tested file copies between other VMs and do you run into the same issue?
Have you tried moving both VMs to the same host and see if it makes a difference?

Also, I strongly suggest you open a case with our support.
