Quick Ref: Nutanix Foundation

During Foundation in some rare cases below errors are observed;

  1. Foundation stuck at 87 % validating IP address
  2. ERR {101} Network is unreacheable

The above error are observed if foudation VM or CVM (with built in Foundation) had incorrect IP address set, like APIPA ip address.

To resolve conenct to CVM or oundation VM and set correct IP address and restart foundation service.

If using CVM built-in foundation you can use IP v6 address to connect by SSH.

netsh interface ipv6 show neighbors

the above command will display ip v6 address discovered with mac address, note mac address started 52:54 which belongs to Nutanix CVM

Interface 12: Ethernet

Internet Address            Physical Address                     Type
-------------------------------------------- ----------------- -----------
fe80::5054:ff:fe01:c246     52-54-00-01-c2-46     Stale
fe80::5054:ff:fe0d:c427     52-54-00-0d-c4-27     Stale


connect to each CVM, using discovered ip v6 addresses;

ssh nutanix@fe80::5054:ff:fe01:c246

and set any ip addresses

sudo vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

and restart network as

sudo service network restart

or restart CVM

sudo reboot

Now retry foundation again should be able continue..
