As a follow up to my previous article on how to change the hypervisor on a new node from the factory here are my tips and tricks on how the process has changed since Nutanix no longer include the hypervisor binaries in the NOS Phoenix package. There is now the Foundations Installer that takes a Windows ISO and a Phoenix package to automatically reimage nodes. This tool can also be used to automatically create your cluster straight after the re-imaging process is complete. I’ll add the manual steps here shortly.
