I’m attempting to import an RVTools into the Sizer tool. I want to exclude some of the VMs before import by editing the RVTools file. When I edit the file and try to import, I get an error “Host cluster cell not found”There are more than 300 VMs, so I can’t import on the VM level and just disable the individual workloads there.Any ideas or methods anyone would suggest to editing the RVTools beforehand? Thanks in advance!
I want to collect informations from a single hyper-V host in a cluster.But i get an error:HTTPSConnectionPool(host='192.168.10.141', port=5986): Max retries exceeded with url: /wsman (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object at 0x000001AD0B88C808>: Failed to establish a new connection: [WinError 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it'))Powershell 5.1 is installed, IP is correct. Has someone an idea?
I tried to use the precheck script on one of our Hyper-V servers.Everything works fine, but I get the error message ".... not a Domain Admin." even though my user is a domain admin. I think this might be related to the fact that the Domain Admins group is called "Domänen-Admins".Has anyone seen something like this before?
Great pleasure to say Sizer 5.0 is now liveTwo very big thingsCluster settings/cluster policy. We always allowed you to edit the model list and set thresholds for cpu/ram etc that the cluster must meet. Lot more now. Mihn cpu speed. Required networking. Also added policy. So you can state I want production, test/dev, or mission critical policy. This gives you more rigor in the sizing as enforces best practicesMultiple recommendations Sizer by default gives you the lowest cost solution. That is there but now core optimized and storage optimized too. So solution with more cores or more storage that fits in cost range you state. Good to have multiple options

Hi everyoneI lead the Sizer team. I wanted to formally introduce Sizer Basic which is now available for all customers in their My Nutanix portalSizer Basic - Provides customers a simple approach to building out an environment. Maybe you are thinking about new projects or want to do some what-ifs on expanding your cluster with more workloads. Sizer Basic is great to scope that out. From there can share the scenario with your SE. Here is a demo
What is Nutanix Collector ?It is a desktop application that collects cluster statistics from your VMware or Prism cluster. This output can then be viewed in Nutanix collector or can be downloaded as an Excel file. You can then upload these Excel files into Nutanix Sizer to size and predict future workloads or just to collect statistics on current usage.Nutanix collector enables you to collect data in following methods: You can choose between: Data center/Cluster or All entities registered to vCenter Single Cluster or all entities registered to Prism Central What you need in order to install:You can install Nutanix collector on your desktop and then connect to either vSphere or Prism to collect statistics. Log in to Nutanix portal and download Nutanix collector desktop application package from Downloads>Essential Tools Install the package on your desktop What you can see:The Clusters Summary tab displays the configuration details and performance metrics of the clusters includi
Collector Portal is the cloud version of the Collector desktop version offering a lot more in terms of features and capabilities.Collector Portal is an online repository for storing collections, creating projects for viewing, analyzing the collected data, and eventually sizing the collected data in the SIzer. The portal also allows for collaboration/sharing of the data/analysis between stakeholders for more informed sizing. You can also revisit/track old sizings/collections and regenerate the analysis/graphs for the data at a later point in time. Collector Portal Navigation Login Open collector.nutanix.com in your browser. Click My Nutanix Login to logon to the application. You can use your Nutanix login to connect with the application.

Hello team, We used Nutanix sizer to configure a 3 node cluster, if hybrid mode is selected the smaller suggested option for cold data is a 4 X 2Tb SAS disks set when we choose 2 x 960Gb SSD for hot data. Is it possible to get support and buy a license if we configure the node with 2 x 2Tb disks? It's a small environment and we don't need all that extra space. Every hardware component is in the supported compatibility matrix of the vendor, just not sure Nutanix can fully support a custom configuration
