There is a Nutanix DLL you will need, which will be out in a little while. Basically the DLL adds all of the logic you will need to add a hosting unit with Acropolis

I read your post too fast.

We only support MCS integration at the moment, which is what that DLL will do.

PVS itself is "unsupported" (in quotes because it WORKS if you do it manually, just no formal support from Citrix or Nutanix, we've got prod customers doing this already)

I'm trying to setup a test lab with XenDesktop 7.9 and I've gotten the plug-in to work, but it's not seeing my Acropolis Hypervisor when I try to enter in the Nutanix connection. The AHV connection address should just be the IP of the main host IP correct? For some reason it's failing there.

Hi,

try your cluster IP not one of the Hpervisor IPS:

Thanks, that did the trick! Getting XD 7.9 on an Intel NUC lab setup.

Glad to hear that it solved your problem.

Please provide feedback about your NUC-Test.
I'll give it a go later on...
