Intel NUC NUC6i7KYK – Installation of Nutanix Community Edition (CE) – Part1 – Hardware setup

As already announced in my recent post I bought three Intel NUC NUC6i7KYK to setup my demo/showcase environment based on the Nutanix Community Edition which is free to use. In the following weeks I will show how I setup the environment step by step and I will document the live demos I would like to show at upcoming events. This will include the Openstack and docker integration.

It all starts with the hardware itself. The NUC skull canyon edition is pretty new and a this post in the Nutanix Community literally convinced me to build a lab with these boxes. I used the following hardware setup. Be aware that DDR4 and SSDs are not included when buying the Intel NUCs.

Nutanix – Upload ISO/Image to AHV from a NFS share

In addition to the post from Josh Odgers it seems it is not well known how to upload an ISO/Image directly from a NFS share to the image service. To achieve this you can leverage the “From URL” field in the PRISM interface.

The format for anonymous nfs access is:

nfs://IP-or-DNS/share/subfolders/isofilename

If user and password is required:

nfs://user:password@IP-or-DNS/share/subfolders/isofilename

Example:
