BMC 7.07 and earlier the Nutanix Default Credentials are username = ADMIN and password = ADMIN. In compliance with California statute SB-327, BMC 7.08 and later uses a unique password. The new default credentials are username = ADMIN and password = <node-serial-number>.
To find the serial number, issue the command “ipmitool fru print” from the host. In the output, search for “Board serial”. The “Board serial” value is the BMC password.
You can also find the serial number on the sticker on the node.
Please take note that if you changed IPMI Username and Password during Foundation, this does not apply.
Nutanix Witness VM
A two-node cluster requires a Witness VM that is located in a separate failure domain either off premise or in a different physical platform on premise. You can configure a Witness for a two-node cluster either when logging in to the Prism web console (Prism Element) or through the Configure Witness option in the main menu.
To change the Witness VM default password, enter the passwd command while logged in to the Witness VM and follow the prompts.
Nutanix Move is a cross-hypervisor migration solution to migrate VMs with minimal downtime. The downtime is incurred during cutover from VMware ESXi, Amazon Web Services (AWS), or Microsoft Hyper-V as a source to an AHV target.
