Re: Does DCE and DCO support on Nutanix AHV platform ?

Hello Billy

 

I'll respond primarily regarding to DCO/IT Advisor but will also comment regarding DCE but I expect others will also add DCE comments.

 

In the DCO or IT Advisor case, DCO or ITA should work on any hypervisor which supports CentOS 7/Redhat 7 in the DCO case and CentOS 8/Redhat 8 in the IT Advisor case. So as long as the Nutanix environment can create a virtual machine which meets the system requirements for DCO/ITA then it should work.

 

As far as I know on the DCE side, current DCE releases created for virtualization are created for VMware ESXi environments. You may experience unexpected behavior if you try to deploy a DCE ova file in an Nutanix environment. Hopefully someone who works more often with DCE offers their feedback as well.

Hi @sesa157186_brid ,

 

@gsterling is correct, DCE only supports ESXI. I have seen customers try and run it on other VM hosts and have it work and I have seen others fail. I have not seen anyone specifically try to run it on Nutanix. I had seen a non-supported VM host just the other day and that person could not get the VM to see an extra drive that they tried to add.  If you run into issues, you can try to get help here from the community but tech support will tell you that the supported host is required.

Re: Does DCE and DCO support on Nutanix AHV platform ?

Just to share a cautionary note, another common failure mode I've seen for unsupported VMs is not surviving upgrades; so they can appear to to work for years, and still come back to bite you at a later date.

 

So if you do try it and it does appear to work - do keep backups.

 

(That said, I've also heard nothing specific to AHV)
