I want to share an interesting issue that I came across when expanding an existing Nutanix cluster with a new node. All installation tasks completed successfully until the Medusa service on the new CVM gave an error stating “Cassandra gossip failed”.
In my last post I showed you how to deploy Nutanix Community Edition 5.18 nested inside VMware Fusion (or Workstation). That nested deployment was based on the native AHV Hypervisor from Nutanix. But now, I want to show you another great new feature of this new CE 5.18: deploying it based on VMware ESXi 7.0U1.
