Cluster Check: Powering on VMs failed

Hi there,

I'm trying to use X-RAY for our purpose and I faced an error without more logs/messages than: "A timeout occurred waiting for VM(s) in VM Group 'Cluster Check' to become responsive within 120 seconds."

I configured both vNIC of the X-RAY VM:
  1. eth0: for communication with the API
  2. eth1: for communication with VMs workload
eth1 is configured with a specific subnet (I didn't find too much documentation for zero configuration).
On my Nutanix cluster, I added this specific network and let it to give addresses to VMs deployed by X-RAY (98 IPs available in this subnet)

During the cluster check, 4 VMs are deployed, powered up and IPs are assigned. The X-RAY VM can communicate with these 4 VMs.

The problem is for the last one, the 5th VM doesn't start and the cluster check fail.

Do you have any idea? Is there some more details in a specific logs?

Thanks for your help

After investigation, it seems the DHCP server cannot deliver an IP address to the last VM.I deleted the vNIC of the failed VM and after re-created the vNIC on the same network, the DHCP server allocated an IP address and the VM is nos reachable.

I close my ticket as this is not an error of X-RAY
