In this post, I will show you how to get CE 5.18 deployed as a nested VM running on a VMware ESXi 7.0U1 host. The ESXi host, which I used, is an Intel NUC 10 (NUC10i7FNH2), which is configured with 64GB RAM and a 1TB NVMe M2 SSD (Samsung 970 EVO).
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”.
This is a short post to raise awareness amongst my fellow Nutanix engineers & users regarding the changed policy on the default password for the ADMIN account to access the IPMI (out of band management) portal on new Nutanix NX nodes.
