Nutanix Community Edition or CE for short is available for free download from Nutanix and traditionally would be run on some decent hardware. However, for everyone out there with a home or internal lab it’s valuable to be able to nest Nutanix CE on ESXi. There are several guides out there but it seems that the more recent editions of Nutanix CE have introduced bugs when nesting on ESXi. This requires techies to go to several places to find all of the answers. My goal is to consolidate all of the information that is required to run Nutanix CE on ESXi 6.5 as of today.
