Change Nutanix AHV NIC From access Mode to Trunked Mode

Trunked Mode allows multiple VLANs on a single NIC for VMs that are VLAN aware.

by default, NIC cards are in access mode.

mode can’t be changed from the UI (Prism) and the solution is to update from CVM acli

you can also covert exiting NIC card to Trunked Mode however based on my experience best and easy way is to add a new card


  1. SSH CVM
  2. acli
  3. <acropolis> vm.get VMNAME
  4. copy information in notepad
  5. nutanix@CVM~$ acli vm.nic_create <vm name> network=<network name> trunked_networks=<comma separated list of allowed VLAN IDs> vlan_mode=kTrunked


vm.nic_create VT-LAB-1 network=NETWORK0 trunked_networks=2021,2022 vlan_mode=kTrunked

WHY Trunked is Required

Above Setting is required when the virtual machine needs to create multiple networks on a single interface. in my case it’s WAF devices that are configured for multiple VLANs, each VLAN is associated with a different kind of application

if you want to add more VLANs run the below

vm.nic_update TT-WAF-01 00:68:8d:04:bf:4d network=NETWORK2108 trunked_networks=2120,2022,2059,2089 vlan_mode=kTrunked update_vlan_trunk_info=true



Why Nutanix Xi Cloud Services and what it is , Let’s take a Test-Drive , #Xi Series

Making things simple is Nutanix DNA , each single feature has always made a big impact to the infrastructure with simplicity and due to which integrate manage and monitor is simple. managing multiple cloud environment is always being challenging and complex job, as different vendor ,solution provider and team involves to delivery single objective but while doing these one command challenge is remain unsolved and that is simplicity and easy of doing things.

Orchestrated DR for NetBackup Instant Access VMs with Resiliency Platform 3.4

If you’re a NetBackup customer, extending data protection to full resiliency is totally achievable! With Veritas Resiliency Platform and Veritas NetBackup working together, your business will be prepared to fend off all kinds of downtime threats by integrating backup with proactive disaster recovery.

Resiliency Platform natively integrates with NetBackup to manage the replication of VMware backup images across sites using NetBackup Auto Image Replication (AIR). This capability comes in handy when you need to restore several systems as part of a single process rather than managing individual restore operations which can be time consuming.

In Resiliency Platform 3.4, this integration is taken a step further. You can use Resiliency Platform to automate and orchestrate 100s of VMs that support Instant Access i.e. bulk restores for NetBackup Instant Access VMs. vMotion can also be enabled to move VMs to primary storage. With this capability you can bring your VMs online in a disaster recovery scenario from your backup data stores with a near-zero Recovery Point Objective (RPO). This can also be used for recovery rehearsals, so you can be sure your business is always prepared, no matter what!


  • ZERO additional storage usage for Dev/Test Instances
  • Ability to achieve almost instant RTO
  • Instant Startup of Test workloads including multi-tier sequencing
  • Transparent movement of VM from Appliance to Production Datastore
  • Customization & end-to-end Orchestration of Recovery Process

Event ID 1196, 1119 DNS operation refused Cluster Servers

Cluster network name resource failed registration. WINDOWS FAILOVER CLUSTER

Microsoft geek


Event id 1196, 1119 FailoverClustering appearing on the clustered Exchange and SQL servers, although the cluster seems to be fine the errors are annoying. Cluster network name resource ‘SQL Network Name (MCCNPSQLDB00)’ failed to register DNS name ‘’ over adapter ‘Production VLAN 400’ for the following reason: DNS operation refused.


The cluster name resource which has been added to the DNS prior to setup active passive cluster ( or any type) need to be updated by the Physical nodes on behalf of the resource record itself. When the active node owns the resources it want to update the A record in the DNS database and DNS record which was created won’t allow any authenticated user to update the DNS record with the same owner


Delete the existing A record for the cluster name and re-create it and make sure select the box says “Allow any authenticated user…
