Can I use X-Ray to test non-Nutanix platforms

Hi.

I’ve been trying to find out if I can use X-Ray to test other platforms (VMware and Hyper-V) or if I need to export the test (the “Four corners” in my case) and then use Curie to test the other platforms.

There isn’t a lot of information on X-Ray and other platforms to be found though.

Thanks.

The only things you should need are just ensuring that X-Ray can communicate with the backend cluster and create its worker VMs and communicate with them as well, which is just the same as any other target. I’d also make sure that the recommendations in: Network Requirements are satisfied as well. Other than that, it should operate the same as a Nutanix target! 👍

You can use X-Ray to test non-Nutanix platforms like vSAN. When you create a target in X-Ray, specify the Manager Type as vCenter and select “Non-Nutanix” in the Cluster Type. You can then just enter the other required information and run scenarios against the target after you add it. Hope this helps!

Thanks Dustin!Are there any prereqs that I need to consider or will X-Ray take care of all the orchestration involved?

Thanks again, much appreciated! I wasn’t looking forward to “hacking” Curie to do all the stuff that X-Ray does. :)
