The soft shutdown and restart operations are initiated and performed by Nutanix Guest Tools (NGT) within the VM thereby ensuring a safe and graceful shutdown or restart of the VM. One can always verify the physical status of Power supply by checking the LED indicators on the PSU unit itself, but in certain cases this may not be possible right away - due to the equipment location etc. Sorry, we're still checking this file's contents to make sure it's safe to download. This indicates a good PSU reading status. Step 1 : To power on the Nutanix AHV host, need to press power button on Nutanix node or we can use the IPMI web console/iDrac/iLO etc. From a CVM on AHV (this will query all HOSTS in the cluster): nutanix@cvm$ hostssh "ipmitool sdr | grep -i ps", nutanix@cvm$ hostssh "/ipmitool sensor | grep -i ps". Go through the field guide 3.7 available on the portal. Sometimes, NCC (Nutanix Cluster Check) will alert for PSU down and a case is automatically created when a PSU down is detected.This can be a false positive alert or are transient errors (when relocating a node or some maintenance which requires a PSU down). Note : After we have successfully powered on the Nutanix AHV host, it will automatically power on the Nutanix CVM without any manual interference. To ensure Power Supplies of a Block or Node are in optimal state, you can login to the physical host or execute a command from the CVM to check their status: From a AHV Host:[root@AHV-HOST~]# ipmitool sdr | grep -i ps. If a PSU shows a value other than the good readings above, please run the same command on other hosts in the same block. Please note : a value of 'nr' means Non Recoverable and requires a PSU replacement. However, a Power supply alert should never be taken lightly. Before you begin. Sorry, our virus scanner detected that this file isn't safe to download. (IPMI is what we use here due to that the HW is Nutanix). Please try again in a few minutes. The output of each of these should show PS1 and PS2 with a value of 0x1 or 01. A fresh Nuatnix box will always arrive with AHV and CVM already setup, so you need to used foundation applet to configure the cluster or re-image to the hypervisor of your choice. You can initiate safe and graceful power operations such as soft shutdown and restart of the VMs running on the AHV hosts by using the aCLI. Enter your username or e-mail address.
